Annoying Sylpheed Quirk
After only a few days I grew frustrated with a Sylpheed quirk. When I opened an email with the mouse on double-click the mail opened centered on the screen. When I opened an email by pressing the keyboard
Enter key the mail opened in the upper left of the screen. This is irritating as Hell.
I much dislike tiling behaviors when I have not configured anything for that. Commonly I want windows opening centered.
The difference seems to be related to me not using a fixed Message View pane.
I could not find a remedy within Sylpheed. I created a
( if ( begin ( is ( window_class ) "Sylpheed" ) ) ( begin ( center ) ) )
I accept that my needs are not the needs of others and that developers do the best they can. Nonetheless, seems each time I run into these kinds of irritations my tolerance levels diminish. That a tool like Devilspie is still needed in the year 2021 is absurd.
