Not a stupid question... unless you were referring to mine. Sorry, I goofed.

No, I don't have two screens. I made this mistake because I conflated
"screen" with "workspace" or "tag" commonly used in similar wm's. Sorry
about that. I tried so hard not to look like a noob...

If I can be forgiven for my boneheadedness, a follow-up question: Is there
a patch or functionality available to quickly cycle through all open
workspaces/tags? This would be identical to the function that defaults to
<Meta>-<left> and <Meta>-<right> in spectrwm.

I am aware of shiftview.c, a patch that is available under the "nextprev"
patch heading <>, but that cycles
through all tags regardless of whether they have windows or not. In
spectrwm the alt-left / alt-right keybinds only cycle through tags that are
in use.

Cheers, and thanks Jens for pointing out my mistake. Sorry about that.
