To add to what Tedd has said:

In a project with multiple windows and tool palettes I have found that I
often have to manually set the window to which I want to draw (window
output). I now routinely add this statement to any fn that draws to the
window to avoid having to chase problems. Don't forget - you cant use
gWhichClass in the same way you can in most other PG projects (ie if you
generate a window filter, the button handler automatically generated will
not nec work).

Palettes are a pain - I've decided to avoid them whenever possible.
