The Clarion Embed Editor can get lost in the Window's Z-Order when you switch applications and try to switch back. Most times you can get focus back to the editor by pressing Alt+F6 but it does not always work. Sometimes to have to shutdown Clarion from the Task manager and you lose work and risk corrupting your App. It can be frustrating.
The below screen shot shows an example with Clarion 2, 4, 5, 5.5 and 6 in and embed point editor. All Clarion windows show. The editor windows are colored purple. The last editor window in the z-order is automatically selected. Currently the editor windows are identified by looking for the Populate Field toolbox. So if you've closed it the editor window will not be highlighted. Notice that the editor window is not a child of the embed list that opened it. The editor parent is the Application tree. This may be part of the problem of how things get whacked.
To give focus to a Clarion window just double click on the desired line. The window will be given focus and CELF will be minimized, closed or left open based on what you have chosen in the drop list next to the Set Focus button.
This minimizes to the tooltray so you can have it ready to run quickly. Thanks to Vince's ABC free for the code to do this.
If writing embed code then you probably have a lot of code and it's easy to spend a lot of time hunting for where you put something like a procedure or where you used a variable. This is exactly why I created another one of my utilities Clarion Source Search. Most users say "I don't know how I ever lived without it!"
