Not sure if this has to do with zwo or not but here are 2 problems I think would streamline prism experiences

First - there's a dialog about embedded relays for handling slow motion moves for accurate guiding. It's displayed every camera connection and steals focus. I get this dialog (amplified by debug activities) somewhere from 20-100 times a night. I think it happens for my guide camera too (both are zwo cameras). Please don't show it or allow opt out.

The other, which I wasn't aware of until I saw it in @Hamza Touhami 's videos, is that the guide cam seems like it should be sharing the same camera window, adding another level of tabs? Instead I have 2 full camera dialogs. Would be great to combine them so I don't have to have them both consuming valuable screen real-estate. Maybe let the dock/undock be done dynamically?

Yes, sharing their driver between the two cameras has driver limitations. Another note, the new update allows the right side to host all the icons in a very clean manner, you should update and start reducing your windows. See the attached image
