Multiple window control

Asked by Brian Joyce on 2014-06-02

I use GIMP every day. That means I have several windows going one desktop.

 I recently upgraded to 12.04. In previous Ubuntu versions I enjoyed 1) double clicking the window bar to roll up the window and 2) pointer hovering over a window to raise it above others. I tried solving my second problem with the "pointer hover" option in ACCESSABILITY but that's more than I want -- the Accessability option highlights text, for example, and that makes reading quite difficult.
