Minimize Creo 3 Windows

Minimize Creo 3 Windows

Creo 3.0, M040

 

With Creo 3 I've noticed that when minimizing the active window to the taskbar, the other open windows remain open.  I did not have the config option "iconify_entire_pro" set but the default is "yes" so it should minimize all windows.  I went ahead and added it with no effect.

 

Is anyone else having the same issue and is there a resolution?

Doug,

This is change in behavior from Creo 3.0. Strating from Creo 3.0 Windows will activate automatically on clicking in other window. All Windows will minimize if you will set config option activate_window_automatically as no.

Unfortunately, you are right, although I have no idea why this new behavior would mean a change in how the program minimizes. typical, give us a nice new feature that we've been asking for for years but cripple something unrelated in order to use it.

Now I have to choose which desirable behavior is more important - being able to fully minimize all windows at once or being able to have windows be automatically activated.
