You are correct Reinhard. And I can't remember if it was on this forum or the development forum, but this windows behaviour was reported to Stu last year, so I know he is aware of it.

Your screen shot shows several actual windows open, so they should be in that list. I think the ones that you have marked as "not visible" can be eliminated from the list by simply clicking them and then clicking the red close button or using command-W. I think you will see the list shorten each time you go through the 'window closing' procedure. I think they will remain closed until WC is restarted.

I was not aware of these opened but invisible windows and have no idea why they should be around, but there may be some reason the Dev is handling them in this manner. Just another task to remember when WC is started, at least if you are running short of RAM or they are causing memory leaks.

This is correct, xair.

Perhaps you can post a note to the Dev about this and he can explain the purpose of having these windows open. It may be as simple as an aid during his development and not needed after that. It may just be something he forgot to delete before publishing a new version. The more I study coding the more it seems like juggling act!! cmu:-)

Maybe Stu reads this one and if it is important enough he will surely take it in mind. I think he is busy on coding WeatherCat V310 ...  [computer]
