Current Behavior

I consider it as a bug, that even though I access all my workspaces by number (like bindsym $mod+1 workspace number 1) the workspace back_and_forth command does go to the last workspace according to its name. In my case, because I autorename my workspaces according to its content, it creates duplicate numbered workspaces and does not lead me to the last one.

Expected Behavior

I would expect workspace back_and_forth go to the last workspace according to its number (since it does not make sense to have multiple workspaces with the same number). Therefore the command would do exactly what it should.

Reproduction Instructions

  1. Open 2 containers in workspace number 1
  2. Move 1 container to another workspace and focus it
  3. Rename workspace number 1 without focusing it (I use justbuchanan/i3scripts/autoname_workspaces.py)
  4. Use workspace back_and_forth and you will not arrive at workspace number 1 but a clone version of it with the old name

I don’t see a link to logs.i3wm.org. Did you follow https://i3wm.org/docs/debugging.html? (In case you actually provided a link to a logfile, please ignore me.)

since it does not make sense to have multiple workspaces with the same number

The same could be said for the names, but for both of them i3 does not restrict duplicates here.

As long as the previous workspace still exists, it sort of makes sense to actually go by container ID so that we are not restricted to number or name. But back and forth also works when the workspace has been closed, in which case we have to go by both number and name. I think this is also how it should be implemented, which requires to memorize both the ID of the previous workspace and its name (including number) and first looking up by ID, otherwise create the workspace by name.

PRs welcome.
