Force Window Activation?

Force Window Activation?

Another question from a new Pro/E (WF3) user here. I usually have at LEAST two windows of Pro/E open at once, a part and a drawing. This seems to be the only program in existence that does not automatically activate the window you have on top. It would stand to reason that the have included the functionality somewhere, perhaps an option I have turned off in my default settings? All I want it to do is activate the window I have in front automatically, like every other program I've ever used. There HAS to be a way to automate that, instead of clicking a box on the toolbar EVERY time I want to change active windows.

Use the window button on the top tool bar instead of the tabs on the bottom of the screen to switch between windows.

Pressing Control + A activates the window and can be done in half a second using the left hand while the right hand stays on the mouse (assuming you're right handed.)

Ah, that works out rather nicely, Chris, thanks!

Really is, isn't it? Progress?
