Disappearing window

My OS X app has a main window and a preferences window. Both are modeless.

If a window from another app is brought over the preferences pane, it disappears. It's not behind the covering window, it's gone.

Finding the main window and clicking that brings back the preference pane and so does clicking the icon on the dock.

Look at the nib settings for the window, there is one that governs this behavior (I think it is or was something like "Hides on Deactivate").

Thanks. I tried that and it makes the window modal. Works for the main window though.

I suppose it's a panel. Inspector has panel up top, window below that.

If it's a panel you are seeing the expected, documented, behavior.
