Currently when you minimize Cantabile’s main window, any open plugin windows also get minimized. Also, plugin windows can’t disappear behind Cantabile’s main window - they’re always in front.
This behaviour in Windows terminology is referred to as the main window owning the popup windows.
I’ve had someone asked rather keenly about the ability to have the plugin popups unowned. This would mean:
a) they can be minimized independently of the main window
b) they can disappear behind the main window
c) they get their own representation in the Windows task bar
What’s the consensus on this? Would you prefer:
- Things left as they are
- A single global option to control this behaviour for all plugin windows
- Ability to select this behaviour on a per-plugin instance
(BTW: This unowned behaviour was how things worked in Cantabile 2).
