Windows show up on every desktop?

Hello all,

On OSX, some informational windows like “Building lighting” shows up on all desktops. I would expect them to remain on the desktop with the editor window, but they are on all desktops on top of all of the other windows. Is that a bug or am I just missing some setting somewhere to change that behavior?

Hey andrew.melo,

I was able to verify what you are reporting here, and have gone ahead and entered a bug report for this issue UE-17712. If you have any questions or need additional assistance please let us know.

Thank you,

Thanks for looking into this!

Hey again Andrew,

This issue came back as ‘By Design’

Notifications are no longer displayed on top of other apps if the editor is not focused.

Also, on Mac minimizing the editor window is not the same as hiding the app, so if you minimize a window, only this window gets minimized, all other windows are left intact. To make all editor windows go away, you have to use Hide option from the app menu (cmd+h).

Thank you,
