Summary

focus is lost on New Window script step

Description of the issue

The New Window script step causes focus to be lost. This is not a big deal for most uses of scripts. However, if you're dealing with offscreen OnTimer called scripted routines, you'll likely use New Window for your sub-routines quite a lot (as I have been doing).Workarounds I'm considering include having a dedicated window for all offscreen OnTimer called scripted routines (in addition to the offscreen Timer window itself) which always remains open. Not elegant, but, conceptually that should solve the problem of losing focus. I just need to adjust all of my scripts now to account for this.So is this a bug or intended behavior? Seems like unintended functionality to me. And it's only expected as the myriad uses of OnTimer have yet to be unveiled.
