Re: [Bug 607796] Re: Launcher, Window management - Dragging and holding a selection over an entry in the Launcher should spread out windows belonging to that application
After I posted the comment I thought that your implementation was similar
to the mouse-clicking policy, so I thought maybe it was the expected
behavior. Now you confirmed me it was :)
Thank you for your answer, is not too common for Ubuntu developers to reply
in such short time.
Keep up the good work
