#72 Decal not closing previous plugin

Anthony Bennett

This is in regards to Decal beta

What is happeneing is that if you open one plugin and
then open a second WITHOUT closing the first, it is
displaying the 2nd plugin over the top of the 1st and
is not giving focus to the 2nd plugin.

This is most obvious with 6th Sense and ACArm since
the 2 windows are different sizes.

1) Open 6th Sense 2.01
2) Open ACArm 2.0
3) You will still see a portion of the 6th Sense
window underneath the ACArm window since it is wider.
You won't be able to click on anything in ACArm. If
you then click the still visible close box in 6th
Sense then you can use ACArm.

This problem is not restricted to these plugins, they
are just being used as an example.

Have tried changing to Hardware rendering but still
get the same problem.

Am running AC in 1152 x 864 resolution

    I'm having the same problem also. Had the problem since Hace plugin on screen...if another plugin pops up
    either automatically or if I click on it, the 1st one keeps
    the Focus, but the 2nd one shows on top. I have to xlose
    the 1st one to get the 2nd one to get the focus. AMD Athlon
