I’m unsing a two display environment and got all Tools and Widgets placed on the second display.
See qcad1.png

There are two problems:

1.) When I open another application on second display, three toolboxes stay on top, the others are behind new application.
See qcad2.png

2.) When I minimize Qcad only the mainwindow will be minimuzed, all the toolboxes and widgets stay on second display also with problem 1.
See qcad3.png

Whould be great, when this issues will be fixed :-)

Thank you very much

P.S.: Hope described well, if not, please drop me a reply...

This task depends upon

Please attach the missing screenshots, thanks.
This sounds like an issue with the Qt toolkit which cannot be fixed on the QCAD level.

Thanks. Could you please indicate if this is the 32bit or 64bit package of QCAD? Thanks again.

Don't think it's a Qt-Problem, because for Point 1 –> Some toolboxes went behind application and some stay on top..

Note that the tool bars are staying on top while the dock widgets are not. This might even be intended behaviour.

It's the 64bit package...

Ok, your right, the Toolbars stay on top, not the Widgets.
But they should be all hide with minimized Main window...
This whould be nice.
