Thank you for trying bug.n. It is always helpful, since most problems
do not appear in my working environment.

Hiding the title bars is intended. bug.n displays the title of the
active window in the bar, but leaves drawing the border to Windows. I
am using Windows Vista without Aero and a theme, where the border of
the active window has a different color, thus achieving the same
effects as dwm.

Ah, yes, I was not aware of this feature. I will see and try to
implement it, if I can match it with the data structure.

I do not know if can find a general solution for this; it is not yet
obvious for me, what causes this problem (parent - child? window
owner? ...).
But one way to deal with the problem could be to write the class
'IDEOwner' to the 'rules' list in 'config.ahk' setting it to
'floating', which will lead bug.n to exclude those windows from tiling.


Kind regards, joten
