I've never seen this behaviour before.

I have a set of hierarchal forms that are opened in a chain, as you dig into the data. Forms are overlapping design not tabbed.
frmMainClient¬frmClientChildData¬frmSubChildDataDetails

So from the client form, you select a child item from a list and it opens a more detailed form based on the child record selected, then you do it again based on the child data.
This is in the development stage and I am frequently in and out of the forms design.

When I open whatever form I'm in, in Design view, all the other normally open forms close! It's really annoying.
None of the forms is opened modally or as a popup.

Clues anybody?

And the one that you're opening, isn't also a subform on another open form?

Ah ha - You may have it - There is a client logo subform that is on all but one of the forms. It's not something I have done for ages.
I'll switch to loading that on form load, and see if that solves the problem.

Yes- That was it - many thanks.
It's been bugging me all week and probably added a few hours in frustration as well!

Glad you got it solved !! That would be annoying I can imagine.
