Current Behavior

  1. I focus parent to some desired point
  2. I move scratchpad on the focused parent
  3. Later on, I get the scratchpad window (it's a parent node)
  4. I move to another workspace
  5. I try to get the scratchpad window, but only the focused window of the scratchpad, not all the tree nodes appear.

Desired Behavior

At step 5, I think the whole window (a parent container of a few windows) should appear, not the one I happened to focus on.

Additional Information

I think the behavior is from where it moves the connection, not its parent to the current workspace.

Would logic like that of be the correct approach?
