Description Chris Curvey 2013-03-04 15:50:23 UTC
Problem description: 

If I already have LOC open, and I go to open a file that needs some parsing (e.g. CSV or tab-delimited), the text import dialog is not brought to the foreground (until I click on the open sheet).  This gives the impression that nothing has happened (because the text import dialog is hidden).

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open something in LOC
2. Cover the LOC window with something else (web browser or something)
3. Using Windows explorer, double-click on a different CSV file.  (alternatively, use the browser window to download a CSV file)

Current behavior:

The text import dialog comes up BEHIND the web browser window, and there is no signal that LOC is waiting for me to do something.

Expected behavior:

a) Bring the text import window to the absolute foreground when opening another CSV file, OR

b) Flash the icon in the taskbar so that I know it is waiting for me to do something.

Operating System: Windows 7
Version: release
