You're right, and my question was poorly phrased. When I invoke org-capture, 
the email I'm viewing remains visible while I select the template. I think the 
issue is that the template requests a timestamp or a SCHEDULED field (or as you 
describe, you may add those manually). The email usually has the date/time 
information visible, but the calendar hides it, making it difficult to fill out 
the template. That is my issue. The current window flow is

1) View email
2) Invoke capture. See email + *Org Select* buffer
3) Select template. See *Capture* buffer and calendar buffer.

I'd like to still see the email in step (3).

If I select a template which doesn't have calendar actions, I don't have this
