Set a floating viewport always on top?

I have two monitors. In Rhino, AC/Corel/etc, one monitor is work and working viewports, the other for tool palettes, etc. I made another floating viewport in Rhino I’d like to place on the second monitor, but it ends up behind the palettes. How do I set it to “always on top?”

Just wanted to ask the same. Yes, TestHideOnDeactivate is step 1 so it doesn’t hide the floating viewport, but we want the floating viewport to actually stay on top, so that for example if you have Grasshopper fullscreen you can still have a floating viewport on top of it.

At least Grasshopper should be considered “part of Rhino” and not hide any viewports anyways. But the option to leave it on top would be great.

Here is an example. As soon as I click on Grasshopper the viewport disappears :confused:

ps: just noticed that the other way rounds its kind of already like that: if you float the grasshopper window over Rhino it is actually set to stay on top always.

Got that, thanks.

Hi,

Just wondering if it possible to set the viewport also always on top, if you are using excel on the background.
the topmostviewplugin, works when using grasshopper in the background. Unfortunately with any other programme it jums to the back, when e.g. using excel.

Any suggestions?
thanks!

Sorry I have no clue how that would work.

Got this little program called ‘deskpins’:

can pin different windows in diff orders over the desktop, maybe you can work out a way to use this to fix your problem…
