[layout] top-level splitv becomes splith after changing resolution #2878
i3 version 4.13 (2016-11-08) © 2009 Michael Stapelberg and contributors
What I did:
I made two windows on an empty workspace and pressed mod4+e until they were vertically aligned.
I then changed the resolution using xrandr.
What I saw:
The two windows are now horizontally aligned.
What I expected instead:
The two windows still being vertically aligned.
NB. It also happens on a second monitor that isn't changing resolution when the first monitor is. splitv lower in the tree isn't affected.
See https://i3wm.org/docs/userguide.html#_orientation_for_new_workspaces. Does that apply to you, i.e., do you change the resolution such that the ratio changes like that?
@stapelberg Would it be intended for this to affect existing workspaces?
I do change the primary monitor from 1920x1200 to 800x600. My secondary monitor that has the splitv layout stays at the same resolution though (1920x1080).
Thanks, I ran this command and it doesn't change to splith anymore.
