Window notifications

Postby gtirloni » 26.03.2014 14:04:19

I use Skype and Office Communicator and default them to desktop 5 usually (keep all chat windows there). The problem with this set up is that, whenever a new message is received, the button in the taskbar corresponding to the chat window that has received the message starts blinking. But it only blinks on desktop 5. If I'm working on something else in desktop 4, I will not see that notification.

Is there a way to make blinking windows appear in the desktop I am currently in? While at that, when I click the blinking button, I would like to me transported to the desktop where the window actually belong. Is it currently possible to configure Dexpot to work this way?

I'm trying not to miss new messages too much (or have to constantly check desktop 5 for new ones, which breaks my flow).

Thank you!

:dex:

The Taskbar Pager plugin has an option to highlight flashing windows. Having the actual taskbar button is only possible with the option "Settings > Switching Desktops > Keep all taskbar buttons visible" enabled.
