Active Window issue in Blender (all versions)
Closed, InvalidPublic


System Information
windows 10

Blender Version
Broken: (example: 2.69.7 4b206af, see splash screen)
Worked: (optional)

Short description of error
I'm working on triple monitor setup (same problem on two monitor setup) and noticed one small problem:
when you deatach some panel from main program window and put it on other screen then you must click in that deatached window to work in it. However if im working in same window but just split screens then everything works as it should be - you don't need to click or somehow activate split window. There must be one additional mouse click to work in that window and that's a little bit frustrating when you try to work fast :)
Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Based on a (as simple as possible) attached .blend file with minimum amount of steps



Event Timeline

That's the normal window behavior in windows and I'm not sure if it's even possible to change that. Depending of the platform that is very different (take i3wm for example). But yeah, that would be nice.

Aaron Carlisle (Blendify) claimed this task.

Like @Joel Meyer (sirjofri) said, this is impossible for blender to change this.
