Description Jonas Kölker 2008-10-30 13:57:40 UTC
The Dodge "onFocus" (really onRaise and onLower) animation currently moves every window that (1) overlaps with the clicked one in the x-y plane, and (2) is contained in the clicked windows [z_now, z_target] interval.

For raising, that makes perfect sense.  Two edge-snapped windows bouncing apart looks a bit silly, but different strokes for horses' courses and all that.

For lowering, not so much.  As an example, create a pile of xterm (10 that overlap in some point).  Lower the top one.  Notice how all the others move away.  Or, lower an 80x24 xterm below a maximized firefox.  Not nice to look at.

I think the right thing to do is have all *lowered* windows move; in the case of raising, that's the same.  For lowering, it means only moving the acted-upon window.

This is the compiz bug tracker, not the compiz fusion tracker which is located at bugs.opencompositing.org.

Please report your suggestion there so that we can track it properly. Thanks.
