Dialog Box Behind App - Force Quit
21.1.0 (macOS sierra v10.12.6 (16G29))
This is happening more and more, and usually when first opening the application. If some dialog box, typically a warning or something, pops up but for some reason then gets pushed behind or hidden by the main app window, there is no way to get back to it and no way for the app to function. Trying to click on ANY part of the app just gets the "no - beep", the sound that plays when you are trying to do something but something else has to happen first... like if a warning box pops up and you try to click ANYWHERE on the app, it will beep at you until you accept/cancel the warning, THEN you can operate the app as normal.
BUT, when this box becomes hidden or is just behind the app, nothing can get you back to it. You can't minimize the app because it just beeps at you, waiting for you to respond to the warning. You can CMD+Tab to other apps, but when you get back to Illustrator, it doesn't refresh of bring the warning box back.
On the dock icon, there is a "Show all windows" option, but that doesn't fix the problem either.
On the Menu Bar > Illustrator > Quit is grey-ed out, the Dock Icon "Quit" doesn't work, so all you can do is open the Activity Monitor and FORCE QUIT Illustrator. Then, reopen and hope it doesn't happen again.
PLEASE fix this
