Classic undocked, multiple monitors. When a (large) dfm is shown it looks like its stay on top in combination with the ide making it impossible to click on ide-menu items or component palette. The same is true for the project manager and object inspector.

So in order to access the ide i need to close all overlaying forms. Please make the ide the way it was in delphi 7 where on activating the ide itself it puts itself in top of the dfm, project manager, objectinspector (and all other owned windows who are shown). This is truely a major drawback on behalf of this new ide.

There are lot of minor problems in undocked format, it really looks like this undocked layout is not enough tested. And no, the default embedded Visual Studio layout (which look's nice but has way to many scrollbars) is not the answer for a multi monitor screen.
