    Hi
    XMetal is annoying me by stealing focus from other applications. Is there a way to prevent this? For example, if I do something like checkin a file, then I want to view my e-mail (instead of waiting for the Astoria CMS to process the checkin), after XMetaL finishes checking in, it forces itself on top of the Outlook window. So, if I’ve started reading an e-mail, I have to click my Outlook window again. I really really really don't want this to happen. I've tried the microsoft TweakUI tool designed to prevent this but it doesn't work… any ideas?

    Hi,

    I believe this is an issue with Astoria's integration with XMetaL, and doesn't usually happen when using XMetaL without the Astoria CMS. Have you been in touch with Astoria?

    If you are checking with Astoria you can ask them if they make calls to the following XMetaL Author API, which tells the product to bring itself to the front and place focus within the active document:

    Application.PostSetFocus(1)
