True that PartDesign (specifically) has this automatism that switches to Task when its activated.
And no option to change that. :?

Crap... well, I guess that answers that, then, doesn't it? That really is annoying... for what it's worth....

For me it would be OK that this behavior is removed or optional. Let's wait a bit for the community opinion. ;)

I know this automated switch to task tab from double clicking a body. I could not find out yet, why it doesn't do this always, but I never found it useful.

I submitted a PR to have a (very) basic ability to prevent this behavior (specifically switching to Task Panel when PartDesign WB is activated) => https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD/pull/2339
To do so, you have to create a boolean parameter called 'SwitchToTask' in "Mod/PartDesign" and set it to 'false'. ;)
