Feature: Always on top #118
It would be great if qtpass had an "always on top" option.
I often add additional information such as the login or email address of an account to my password notes which I copy&paste manually after having pasted the password. Currently this requires bringing qtpass' window back to front before the second copy operation.
You're right. Depending on how powerful your window manager is, you can (a) toggle "always on top" for either each application instance or even (b) have the setting persisted across multiple application instances and applied automatically on application startup (which is possible e.g. in KDE).
Unfortunately not all window managers provide these features. At least on Windows I wasn't able to find a solution for either (a) or (b) without installing additional software such as AutoHotkey. Any hints how to achieve this are very welcome.
AFAIK even some Linux desktop environments such as Gnome or XFCE don't provide any means for having "always on top" being applied automatically on application startup without additional software (such as Devil's Pie or its successor).
Just to clarify: The intention of the feature request was to support (b) without requiring additonal software on all platforms and window managers supported by qtpass.
And apparently this should be pretty easy to add.
And not that intrusive, since the whole ConfigDialog needs some dire rework soon anyway
