Summary0005769: SuMo blocks other activity during initial scan
DescriptionRun SuMo
Panel opens centre screen, will not minimise or get out of the way
preventing workflow until it has finished
and this is very very very annoying.

Steps To ReproduceRun Sumo
Additional InformationVery annoying behaviour.

that Sumo does not have annoying behaviours such as this.

Please allow scan to complete in background.
Blocking my foreground serves me no good purpose.

To which workflow are you refering? Which SUMo workflow? Or are you refering to your workflow outside of SUMo?

If you refer to a SUMo workflow, please describe it. Eventually, SUMo can be configured to process a similar workflow without such effects (with different UI) as a workaround so that you don't need for the long term solution to get implemented.

If you refer to your workflow outside of SUMo, I observed already similar behaviour with one slight difference. In such a blocking state, I may minimize the SUMo main window at certain processing steps in contrast to your description. But that isn't possible for every of its steps. When it is not possible, I cannot put into background neither. But I usually succeed to put another application into foreground. That might be a workaround in order to render that behaviour less annoying for the mean time.

Allowing to minimize SUMo during "long" operations may be a quick workaround (change to be done)
