Raising of Windows

Although clicking on a window usuall raises it, when using ``auto keyboard focus'' this is not necessarily the case. The keyboard focus can be on a window which is partially hidden by another window.

Raising of windows can either be done by clicking on a window or automatically when it receives the input focus. In ``auto raise mode'' a window is rased automatically after a set number of seconds when the mouse pointer points to it.

Toggling the ``auto raise mode'' on or off can be done in the window managers resource file.
