SynvbackSE Screen Focus Behavior

Post by unknownsailor » Wed Jun 20, 2018 10:31 pm

I have a long standing issue with the way SyncbackSE steals screen focus when a profile finishes the comparison stage and displays the differences.

I have two displays, and I oftentimes have a SyncbackSE group profile containing Sync tasks running while doing another task. I have more than once been typing on a Word document or other sort of text entry, and Syncback will pop up a difference dialog and steal screen focus asking for me to continue the run, and because I was in the middle of typing the default "continue run" option is executed.

Is there a way to turn this off? Leave it at flashing in the the task bar, but not taking screen focus?

I've had this issue since SyncbackSE version 6.

HI, AFAIK, this seems to be (and 'to have been') rather a puzzle for some time, as discussed here

You would firstly do well to check the relevant 'keep on top' setting is switched off for each profile (currently/in V8, the setting is still on the Display menu of the Differences window, and not accessible AFAIK any other way; IIRC it needs to be set 'per-profile'). If this doesn't help, I have no further ideas, and as per last comment from mickyj, neither does he.
