Stacking Windows

I can't figure out how to show one small window (eg pop-up help screen) over the top of a larger window. Using Go to Layout and Select Window commands, I keep ending up with just seeing one window.

Is it possible to see more than one window from the same file at the same time?

Thanks

FM has the problem that if any of the windows is maximized, any new window (not maximized) will cause the maximized windows to adjust themselves.

in fact, i think creating any new window will cause any maximized windows to adjust anyway.

best solution so far is to "manually" maximize the window to a degree that just bearly touches FM application window.

We recently built a solution that relies on two windows: a main body window and a right-side menu that is there through 90% of the app.

What I found that worked was creating a new table just to hold dimensions of the windows. I reference this table and its data whenever I open a new window or reset/resize. I manually calculated the pixel dimensions for each (trial and error) based on the monitor resolution I knew we would force the client to use.

It's pretty handy.
