Photoshop: Problems with CS6 Beta windows

I am using Photoshop CS6 Beta on a Mac Pro with OS X Lion. I love it so far! I just wanted to report a small bug I have been encountering with the new window tabbing composition (you know, the one that works like Windows Photoshop). In Windows Photoshop when I pull a window out of the tab set it remains in front of the items that are still in the tab set, even when it is not the active composition. In this version, when I pull a window out it will go behind the Photoshop window when another composition is selected. Since it falls behind the Photoshop window I have to constantly spread my windows in order to find it again.

Hi Ryan,

This is expected.

In Photoshop CS6, with the Application Frame on (turned on by default now in CS6), main window needs to be front most and this mean that if you start working on the document in the application frame, then it will come forward.

What you may want to do is simply choose Window>Application Frame to disable the application frame so it behaves the same way as Photoshop CS5.
