Intellij idea can't switch windows content by it's own #2745
Binary i3 version: 4.13 (2016-11-08) © 2009 Michael Stapelberg and contributors
The i3 binary you just called: /usr/bin/i3
URL to a logfile as per http://i3wm.org/docs/debugging.html:
What I did:
Switching windows between Idea projects by i3wm hotkeys (win+k/l) and by idea (ctrl+alt+[)
What I saw:
What I expected instead:
Thanks for the video and log.
It looks like Idea sends a ConfigureRequest to re-stack the window, raising it to the top (i3 doesn’t handle this right now), then uses SetInputFocus to change focus, circumventing the window manager. This is why the title bars are updated (i3 gets the event and reacts accordingly), but the window is still hidden.
Let’s fix this after the 4.14 release.
