I needed to free up some RAM, so I closed Safari and directly restarted it, then I went to Logos and clicked around a bit. I had just right-clicked when the main Logos window 'disappeared' and Safari turned up instead (which is normal), but the right-click popup did not 'disappear', but remained on top of Safari (which is definitely not normal). Obviously the popup should stay in Logos' Space, and not come along to Safari's Space.

You'll probably need a 'minimum specs' computer to recreate this, as the ones you normally work on will probably reopen Safari faster than you can get back to Logos and start doing anything. And you'll also need to have Logos and Safari in different Spaces, of course. 

(Btw, does anyone know of a way to make new programs open in the background,  without  automatically switching over to that Space when launching. Very annoying when your computer is too slow to sit waiting for a program to open.)

This happens to me all the time (FYI... I use Windows; not mac).  After a few minutes, it does go away.

4.5b. I'll update Tuesday or so if nothing 'scary' has turned up by then.

PC Pop-ups are closed when panel is closed

Doesn't seem like exactly the same issue (though, for all I know, it may have the same cause). I never closed any panel (nor anything else for that matter); the OS just automatically switched to another Space in the middle of my right-clicking, due to another program launching there. I have nothing against this particular popup staying open, but it should have stayed open in Logos' Space, not in Safari's.

Interesting, then it's not one of the many 4.5b for Mac regressions.

I haven't been able to reproduce this issue on 5.0a SR-4 or on 4.6a SR-6. Are you still seeing this behavior? If so, logs of this occurring might be helpful in resolving the issue.

Opening Safari after I have opened Logos isn't something I normally do (even less so after I finally got myself some more RAM), and I have too much going on in Safari right now to close it down and try it out, but I tried with Thunderbird without problems. I guess that unless or until you hear anything more from me or someone else you can shelve this somewhere.Smile
