This has been happening for some time - not just in the latest betas but a colleague raised it with me today and it has annoyed me for ages so I thought I’d raise it.
If I have a describe window open (I almost always have one with several tabs), the cursor focus is always in the describe window rather than the editor window when returning to Toad. Let me elaborate!
In the options, I have Display Style = Stay-On-Top window Outside of Toad; Grouping = All describes are contained in a single tabbed window
Open an editor window.
Write a select statement (select * from All_Tables)
Press F4 on All_Tables (separate describe window pops up).
Click back in the editor window to add a where clause to my select statement.
Press Alt+Tab to have a look at something else (document, application, screenshot etc).
Press Alt+Tab to go back to Toad and continue the where clause…but I can’t without grabbing my mouse and clicking back in the editor window because the focus has jumped to the describe window!
Even if I minimise the describe window at the end of step 3, when I go back to Toad (step 6) the describe window restores itself and gets the focus.
I think the describe window should only ever get the focus if you click into it - all other times it should be the main Toad window that has it.
Any chance you could have a look at that?
