One more question: Are you seeing this consistently? Is it only
if you've had your machine running awhile, or only on Tuesdays, or
just pretty much every time you switch? Does it happen if xScope
and the Simulator are the only apps running?
Also, which Mac Pro? In case we try to duplicate here, I want to
see if we can match your setup as close as possible.
It seems to always happen. I've had to end up turning SmartTools off if I want to use the Loupe in the simulator since that is the only way I can seem to get it to stick onscreen.
I'm running a MacPro4,1:
Model Name: Mac Pro
Model Identifier: MacPro4,1
Processor Name: Quad-Core Intel Xeon
Processor Speed: 2.66 GHz
Number of Processors: 1
Total Number of Cores: 4
L2 Cache (per Core): 256 KB
L3 Cache: 8 MB
Memory: 6 GB
Processor Interconnect Speed: 4.8 GT/s
Boot ROM Version: MP41.0081.B07
SMC Version (system): 1.39f5
SMC Version (processor tray): 1.39f5
Is there a 'defaults write" I can enable to turn on more logging about the SmartTools logic? If not, I could run a debug build with extra logging enabled. Since I can easily reproduce it on my machine that would be an option if you can't actually make it happen there.
I seem to have made it work by disabling "Activating a tool brings xScope to front". There must be some interaction with that feature. As long as it is off, the simulator seems to retain my selected tools when I switch away band back to the app.
