Description Andres Betts 2018-08-15 22:23:29 UTC
When entering present windows your currently active window looses focus. This makes it so that all windows loose focus on present windows and the user doesn't know where the focus is. Like you have lost a pointer.

I would like to request to keep the focus on the focused window through present windows.
Comment 1 Martin Flöser 2018-08-16 04:11:56 UTC
What do you mean with "focus"?
Comment 2 Andres Betts 2018-08-16 05:38:32 UTC
By focus I mean the active window that gets to be lighter than the rest while you are in present window mode
Comment 3 Nate Graham 2018-08-21 20:12:54 UTC
I think he means that the current foreground window should start off focused in the effect when it's invoked. Is that right, Andy?
Comment 4 Andres Betts 2018-08-21 21:56:07 UTC
That is correct. Sorry for my poor language there.

Remove completely present windows

since it has been replaced by windowview, and Desktop Grid
is ported as well, remove present windows which is effectively dead code

This is still valid for the new QML-based effect.
