keeping dialog boxes from being hidden by main window
When I select, for example, Filters / Décor / Add border, the dialog box appears behind the image window. How do I get it to appear and stay on top of the image window? The same happens, e.g., for Filters / Generic / Convolution matrix, but not for Image / Canvas size, for example.

Thanks!

Try "Edit > Preferences > Windows management"
check "[]Activate the focused image"

Are you operating in single window mode? Turn it off
- "Window > Single window mode"

More info from you:
- What operating system?
- What version of Gimp are you using? (gimp x.x.x.) ?

- Do you have any other program windows open or maximised behind Gimp when you run the filters? Try minimizing or closing those.
