Opening 2nd PDF does not restore qpdfview 0.4.14

Asked by Mark on 2019-05-21

Hi,

I'm running Debian Stretch / Mate 1.20.4.

Scenario:

1. qdfview is running and has a pdf open. It's minimized.
2. I launch a second PDF that I have just downloaded.

I'd expect that qpdfview would restore itself to show me the second PDF. Instead, it opens the second PDF but stays minimized.

Is there a setting I can adjust to change this behavior?

Thanks!
Mark

Hello Mark,

qpdfview does request the window to "activate" its window when a tab is opened, but that is only a request and the final decision is up to the window manager. Some do nothing, some give a visual indication and some will bring the window to the foreground. For the more featureful ones, this is all configurable. So if there is a setting, it is a probably a setting of your window manager, but I have to admit that I do not know about where exactly this can be configured for Mate.

Best regards,
Adam
