Very minor annoyance/nitpick but the modal dialogue:

"A file with the selected name already exists, do you want to replace it?

in the context of the 'Forward Engineer CREATE script' process is associated with the main workbench window instead of the 'Forward Engineer' process window/dialog.

Only impact I can see is that it is possible for that modal dialog to 'fall behind' the 'forward engineer' process dialog, which hurts usablity a tiny bit.

How to repeat:
Open or create a project.

1) File » Export » Forward Engineer SQL CREATE Script
2) Choose a location to save the script where a file already exists
3) Choose Next

The modal dialog reminding you that the selected file already exists appears.

Click somewhere behind it, on the Forward Engineer process window.  The modal dialog falls behind the process window.

Fixed as of 5.2.38:

The dialog windows now remain in front, even when another part
of Workbench is clicked.
