    Does anybody know of a way to configure Sway so that it defaults to opening new windows in "floating" mode instead of tiling? I can't stand tiling.

      I used to think the same. One of my work colleagues suggested awesomewm and i said 'I want to be in control of where the windows go, not the WM'. Now I wouldn't have it any other way, floating is madness, THIS IS SPARTA.

      Anyway, it's full i3 compatibility and I don't know if sway has it's own. So google for i3 for the same, and magic like this appears:


      # force floating for all new windows
      for_window [class="[.]*"] floating enable

      On another note, great to see another release, such a shame about waycooler.

          I've worked from both solely a 13" laptop screen and 27" + 23" combo and very rarely used anything else than fullscreen windows. Tiling or floating, whatever, redundant for me.

          The only tiling I would do was putting a terminal window and web browser in half-and-half, vertically-maximized state.

            In that case why are you using a TILING desktop manager?

              Wants to use Wayland but doesn't understand how to, chooses the wrong ticket to the wrong train and complains that nothing is well.

                More like he wanted to fly from New York to Paris but in fact boarded a train to Baltimore and now he's asking the locals where's the Eiffel Tower.

                  The very definition of Sway is "Tiling Window Manager". If you don't like tiling, you should consider something other than Sway.
