    Is anyone else experiencing this?
    Since I updated to Ventura beta, Parallels 17 (and now 18 & 18.0.1) are showing broken Z-order for W11 windows when in Coherence.
    Eg when you open any app (or window such as File Explorer) it comes up in front of any Mac apps that are open, HOWEVER once you try and grab the window or switch to a Mac app and then back, the W11 window will stay in the background, leaving any Mac apps in front. The focus will however be in the W11 window (so if you type that will go to the window that is now obstructed). It is not possible to then bring the offending Windows App to the foreground again.

    You can of course minimise all Mac app windows or exit coherence [Re-entering it does not fix things]. I had reported this as a bug more than a month ago and was hoping it would be fixed, but still no go for me with Ventura Beta 6 and Parallels 18.0.1.

    Any solution?

    This issue seems to be resolved in macOS beta 7. Please verify
