One more question if you don't mind....
Now that the new window opens in the front, I can't
get the original window that is now behind (and as you
specified tagged as "Advanced - Keep Below Others") to
come forward --- unless I click on the title bar and
select "Advanced" "Keep above others".
Isn't there some way to tell the obscured window
(maybe in the ACTIONS menu in the window) to have a
mouse click (left, midlle, whatever) raise the back
window to the front when I click or alt-click anywhere
on that back window? This seems to be a problem
whether or not the "focus" flows the mouse.
