Hi Pete,

Here is an annoyance with the way that the "tear-off" sessions work in AT8.

I typically create two tabbed sessions onto our LIVE server on my notebook screen, with a second set of two tabbed sessions onto our TEST server on my external monitor. AT8 seems to treat these separate groups of tabs as a single instance. That is good when it comes to using FTPICK (which wouldn't work between separate AT instances on v7), but is REALLY annoying when it comes to wanting to display other applications over the top of one of the tabbed sessions.

Say I have a browser session over the top of one of the AT sessions. If I click on the exposed AT session on the other screen, then the hidden AT session (underneath the browser) jumps to the top. Typically, that is NOT what I want to happen. To prevent this happening, I have to minimise the AT group that is not in use - then I can click between the windows with things operating as expected.

I note that if I tear a tab off Firefox, the tabs operate totally independently. Clicking on one does not do anything to the other tab.

Is it possible to change the behaviour of AT8 so that this doesn't happen.

Pete shared with us a Windows Registry entry which allows AccuTerm V8 to act like V7 in which you can launch multiple independent instances of AccuTerm.  

The only negative to this is that tear off tabs will only work with the instance of AccuTerm that initiated the tab, and you cannot move a tab between independent instances.

Not a biggie though if your users prefer the multiple, independent instances of AccuTerm as you have described.
