I am having an issue when I press tab to turn my palettes on and off with the tab key. They are re-ordering themselves alphabetically instead of how I left them. For example the layers palette will be visible above other palettes, I will press tab then do some painting/working, then when i press tab to turn the palettes back on I find that it is buried underneath other palettes. Is there any reason that the palettes should not be exactly as I left them vs. re-ordering themselves alphabetically?
Hi Bert, Checked with engineering. This is as designed by Apple. Hidden windows do not have a z-order on macOS. The workaround is to not overlap floating panels (and/or keep them snapped together or the edge so they have the same z-order)
