Hi there , this is my first post! using budgie for a few months now and like the look and feel. I have now a second monitor connected and i am running into weird issues: I have the second screen on top of the first screen (laptop screen) and when i try to move a window from lower to upper screen it does not work. when i set the panel on autohide it works. but on autohide, the panel always overlays my browsertabs and is very unpredictable. my question is: is there any solution to this vertical setup? is there a shortcut for panel hide maybe that toggles the panel on and off? that would be way more useful than the “intelligent” panel hide in my case. thanks!
My suggestion here is to have the panel at the bottom of the primary display.
Xorg has a limitation where a panel is in place … nothing can be ‘pushed’ through the fixed space a panel takes up.
As you say auto hide is a workaround.
No a panel cannot be turned off by a key sequence. That would be an in interesting enhancement for someone to work on.
Hi there, thanks for the answer! I will find a workaround… for now i slightly misalign the two screens in the display setup so i can move things up and down, but it gets a bit messy
Actually - that’s a really nice bit of lateral thinking!! Congrats
