V 6.87 and IDE sub-window focus

I thought that Erel had agreed that there would be a change in the way that sub-windows of the desktop IDE would behave. This has not happened yet.

In particular I was hoping that Help windows would stay minimised when the IDE itself was minimised and then restored, and that when the IDE was given the focus any Help windows would not remain on top so that the IDE was almost completely obscured.

The search sub-window also remains on top of other non-IDE windows even when the IDE is minimised.

I have just spotted another strange behaviour but do not know if it is new. When I search for a Sub name the first instance that is found may be a call not the declaration. So I thought that, while the name is still highlighted, I could use "Goto (sic) Sub Declaration" (or shift-F2), but when I do this nothing happens.

The help windows issue will be handled in this version.

Apparently this issue is more complicated than it was first seemed. It will not be fixed in v6.90.

I plan to release v6.90 to the beta testers in a day or two and several days afterwards to release it to all users holding an active license.
