Comment:

This probably cannot work: how would we know which windows belong on one client and which ones belong on the other. This is more likely to cause pain and confusion, just for trying to workaround a specific application constraint (Firefox profiles).

Some background: every drop down menu, every dialog, every alert box, etc.. are all windows that we forward. Some of them set the "transient-for" attribute which allows us to link them back to their parent window, many do not.

In any case #41 would need to be finished first. And then the UI for managing this "feature" would be clumsy at best. I very much doubt we will ever get around to even trying to implement this ticket.

  • Ticket #489 – Description

    initial v2  
    1 I would like WinSwitch to support sending one or a subset of windows from a single application to a remote client. This flexibility would allow, for example, one running instance of Firefox (which only allows one running instance per profile, oddly) with multiple windows on different displays.
