7.1i Schematic - Schematic errors and other dialog pop-up windows open behind Project Navigator (Unix)


Keywords: error, dialog, pop up, message, box, symbol, hang, freeze, freezes, hangs

When I open a schematic with missing or outdated symbols, an error message and dialog box appear. On a Unix platform, these boxes can open behind Project Navigator and make the schematic editor appear to be frozen.


On Solaris, CDE Window Manager can be configured so that Modal dialog boxes, such as "About", are always on top of the main window.

To enable this feature, add the following line to the $HOME/.Xdefaults file:

Dtwm*secondariesOnTop: True

Then, log out and log in again.

This issue has been fixed in the ISE 8.1i design tools release.
