Telephone pop-up no longer stays on top in loader V5.6 08/08/2020 at 10:05 #130474

Open telephone window to place a call to a depot.
Try to keep the other trains moving while waiting for the depot to answer.
Now the telephone window disappears behind the panel view, and I risk forgetting all about it!

(Yes, I know I can bring it back into view with O or the telephone button.)

Please may we have this very useful feature back.

Graham,

I don't get this on either my Desktop, or Laptop by default. I could only reproduce it by ticking "Always on top" on the main view window. Then on opening the place call menu, if I clicked anywhere on the main view it would disappear.

A breakdown of your OS, and graphics card would possibly help us reproduce it and find a fix if it's not caused by the above.

Does it happen every time you run a simulation?

I've had intermittent issues where clicking on the main view with another window open brings the main view to the front- it happens apparently randomly during a session, and then remains until I close the game. That's been happening for a long time though.

Karl,

This happens on my desktop and my laptop, both running Windows 10 release 1909.

As you say you don't experience this, I rebooted my laptop and the problem has gone away (too many things open on the desktop for the moment to do the same).

Sorry I didn't do this before posting, but it seemed unlikely to have any effect on the symptom.

Thanks,
Graham

As Steamer mentions above, it seems an intermittent thing, if you do come across a way to reproduce it consistently we can probably get it sorted.

Intermittent things are always the hardest to fix
