Affinity interface: floating panels over "new file" windows etc.

Recommended Posts

I was looking for an answer to my problem, but surprisingly I did not find it and I am very surprised.
From the beginning, as I use all three Affinity applications, it really bothers me that the panels appear above the windows for creating a new document or opening another file. It should be exactly the opposite.
Maybe I have to switch something in the settings, but I'm surprised that no one is shouting about it.
Videos from A.Photo and A.Designer attached.

MacOS 12, latest Affinity apps, but the problem accured with previous OS and Aff versions too.

This has been mentioned several times over the years but so far nothing has been done to change it.

As a workaround, you could hit Tab to hide everything in the UI before opening another file or creating a new one & then hit Tab again to bring back all the floating panels & other UI stuff, but it is annoying that we have to resort to such things.
