[UI] making sure the note editing window keeps focus

Postby urlwolf » Thu Jul 14, 2011 9:44 am

Maybe my use case is a bit unusual.
I use 'focus follows mouse' in windows (for ergonomics reasons; it minimizes clicks). when I press the shortcut for 'new note' I get a window, but if the mouse is not on top of it, I cannot write to it. So my request would be (if possible) to make sure the note editing window keeps focus once created.

Thanks

Hi urlwolf,

sorry for the delay in reply,

I don't know how it would be possible to keep the focus without making the editing window modal.
As I understand it, with your setting Windows just focuses the windows which are under mouse. Making mouse jump around is not good from user experience standpoint. Do you have any suggestions on how to do it? Thanks

Hi Alex,

I agree that mouse jumping is not ideal, but in my particular case, I would prefer it. Maybe have it as an option?

Thanks!
