The 'New Document' panel appears on the same virtual desktop it was last opened on, which can be different from the desktop which the main window is currently on. This happens only if Affinity Designer is not assigned to a desktop (i.e. if you click the Dock icon and Options -> Assign to: None is selected), which is the macOS default. Note: this is without macOS fullscreen. Steps to reproduce: Launch Affinity Designer. Create a new document (File -> New). Open Mission Control and move the Affinity Designer window to a different desktop. Create a new document again. In the unified window mode, the new document is added to the existing window. Furthermore, if the existing window was minimized in the Dock, it is automatically un-minimized and you're automatically switched back to that desktop. In the separated (floating panels) window mode, the new document is created in a new window on the same desktop as the 'New Document' panel. However, if you subsequently click and drag the title bar to reposition the new window, the new window may suddenly be warped back to the original window when you release the left mouse button (this doesn't happen consistently). Demonstration: new-document-spaces-glitch-compressed.mov If the 'New Document' panel simply opened on the current desktop, then these issues could be avoided. Also, if you're using Affinity Designer in native macOS fullscreen and you open the 'New Document' panel, it kicks you back to the last desktop. You then have to manually switch back to the fullscreen space to see your newly prepared document. Question: Is it not possible, and would it not be better also in this case, to show the panel on top of the fullscreen window?
