Improving the user experience for all functions of Studio is one of our top priorities. As of last week we turned on a change to prevent place opening in Studio from stealing focus. This means that if any other open application has focus while a place is opening, Studio will no longer steal focus away. Here is a short video comparison of before and after changes.
To further minimize focus stealing we will not be showing the standard splash screen on launch of Studio in test mode (i.e. Studio launching Client/Server etc.)
Huge shoutout to @robDR for making this happen. Let us know what you think in the thread below!
