This is controlled by the WindowClickSelect option. On some platforms, you can make a notebook that looks like a palette but doesn't act like a palette, if that would solve your problem. The relevant options... WindowFrame (* determines what the border looks like *) WindowFloating (* determines the floating behavior of windows *) WindowClickSelect (* determines whether typical menu and keyboard actions will work on the window *) Note that there are some permutations of combinations which can cause problems here. As I recall, on Mac, you can't split apart the WindowFrame palette setting from the WindowClickSelect palette behavior (and, in v7, neither from WindowFloating->True, although that, as Rob pointed out yesterday, was an unintentional bug). Also, on all platforms, I believe, WindowFloating->True plus WindowClickSelect->True can lead to problems. Sincerely, John Fultz jfultz at wolfram.com User Interface Group Wolfram Research, Inc.
