Modal Windows Don't Cover Floating Windows

FileMaker Pro

Description of the issue

When using scripts to spawn new windows, a modal window will be created underneath a floating one even though the floating window is disabled while the modal one is on screen.

Create a script that opens 2 new windows. Make 1 modal and 1 floating (order doesn't matter)

Expected result

Modal windows should be on top of floating ones

The inverse is true

Create hidden tab panels to create a modal dialog effect, but it's a huge pain
