Floating windows on Linux

Recommended Posts

Hi!

We're using Linux at work and when using floating windows they aren't "attached". I have my scene/context view on one monitor and the network view on my second monitor. When I use programs like Nuke with a similar setup they still act like the same program, so if I alt tab to nuke both windows show up. When I alt tab to Houdini I have to alt tab to both the network view floating window and the general Houdini window. This becomes very frustrating when having multiple Houdini instances open as it's very easy to lose track of which floating window is attached to which Houdini instance.

Any tips on this? I suppose I could create a desktop which spans over two monitors but that makes the time line and a few other things a bit hard to use.

Thanks in advance.

When I was on Linux I did exactly that. Created a workspace which spanned two monitors.

Customise it so the timeline and other bits only span one monitor.

In the Houdini Preferences, go to General User Interface and activate Keep Floating Windows on Top

Thank you Csmnt! This worked beautifully. I guess I should go through the preferences a bit more carefully..
