Creo 5+ causing flashing windows when running mapkeys; Vote for fix long overdue

PTC has apparently made changes to the code for Windows 10 (compliance for MS standards?) that cause flashing windows to be visible when running mapkeys. The visible mapkeys config option has no effect on this, I have a product enhancement request posted, please vote for it to get it on the to do list for development. This config option only works on the original menu based UI items and not the new GUI so it is rendered ineffective starting with WF release.

 

PTC explanation for the newly flashing windows:

P-50( Creo 5.0) lets Windows 10 add the desktop window manager glow to the borders of its windows.  When Windows does that it changes the composition level of the window, which affects the timing etc. of things such as map and unmap.  What you are seeing in P-50(Creo 5.0) is surely the fact that Windows takes marginally longer now to show/hide a window.

 

Vote for the fix to be implemented here:
