Development Environment 10.0.825.0

This is like the most obnoxious behavior in the world... you click 1CP, and get back to work on something else... but every time 1CP completes a step, whatever you are doing loses the cursor so you are typing into thin air... put the cursor back, go back to work, same thing happens... just keep focus wherever it is when 1CP completes a step.

Or refresh references or open an espace - literally anything will steal your mouse!

Yeah, but that's not a new feature, it's a bugfix. There's so many focus issues with SS I don't even know where to begin, all originating from the SS UI rewrite in 9.0 (I think). Like the focus stealing from other apps (why Windows even allows this I don't know, but really...). Or the fact that if you connect to a different environment, the new instance of SS doesn't get the focus. And so on and so forth...

I'll be opening an eSpace in Service Studio and typing an email, and when the "Add/Remove References?" dialog comes up, it will steal focus from email, and my typing will go to the dialog and do odd things. Happens to me pretty often, and happens when the Add/Remove references window goes away, so my typing go to Service Studio...

Vasco -

You don't need my permission to merge. :)

But yes, they are all variations of focus-stealing.
