OPEN Ingest window disappearing
« on: July 18, 2012, 02:08:40 PM »
As I observed the ingest progress window is only visible when PM is the active program and disappears the instant when I switch to another application.

I would prefer to have it still wisible behind other windows while I browse or read emails on most part of the screen but I could keep an eye on the progress and see how much is left.
I know there ist he tasks panel under the navigator but usually I keep it hidden.

This is not a big issue but if it is a status flag modification in a line of code I would much prefer the ingest status not hidden when PM is inactive.

OSX 10.6.8 PM 12883 (1b2ea31)

The Ingest Tasks window is once again just a normal window.

Ingest dialog still not visible when PM is not the active window.

Ingest window looks like this during ingest when PM is active window:
