In the terminal titlebars there's a little icon on the left, it's in there :)

Thanks Chris Jones, that solved my question.

But I guess if you hide title bars by default, that makes it pretty hard to find!

Now it's turned into a request....

"If the title bar is hidden, move the grouping menu to the screen menu..."

(I use terminator extensively in helping to manage many thousands of servers. The ability to multiplex terminal sessions has been indispensable. Thanks so much for this great tool.)

Doh! I spoke too soon. Clicking the little title bar icon "Assign to group..." did nothing.
broadcast-all works, though.

I ran debug mode, and didn't see anything that jumped out at me...

RHEL 5.4, python 2.4.3, vte 0.14.

Hmm, we do seem to have some oddness if you start making groups before splitting. I would suggest turning the titlebars on and splitting before you start grouping. I'll look into the bugs and what we can do to fix them for the next release.

I am thinking that we might need to make the titlebars enabled all the time because they're very useful for things like the grouping menu, and coping with them sometimes being there and sometimes not is proving quite difficult!

Thanks for your feedback :)

I'm back....

Here's the traceback when I click on the "Assign to group..." button.

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/terminatorlib/", line 1654, in create_group
    window_x, window_y = self.get_window().get_origin()
AttributeError: 'TerminatorTerm' object has no attribute 'get_window'

I get no popup window, and no way to make or manage groups.

This also came up as a bug today and is fixed in the development version. I'll make another release soon to cover this (basically the problem is that we used some functions only found in newer versions of pygtk). Apologies!

 I'll hold off for the next version and give that a go, then.

Thanks very much, Chris!
