Clicking Reply Button Sends the Current Window and the new Editor Window to the back

James McDonald
Hi,

I am using Evolution 3.22.6 on Fedora release 25 on a MacBook Pro ( MacBookPro11,3 ).

I have my google email account configured and when I double click an email from my inbox to open it in its own window and click the Reply button that window pops-under the evolution main window and the new Reply Editor window does also. This is annoying because then I have to use my super key to display all open windows and select the correct evolution editor window.

I have tried using d-conf and gnome-tweak-tool to change my window managers behaviour as follows but the behaviour is still happening

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences focus-new-windows 'strict'
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences auto-raise true

Does anyone onlist have any idea what further I can do to debug or fix this issue?

Which window manager are you using?

So, it's like it's raising the main evolution window?

It does seem annoying. Would perhaps Alt-Tab help find the window
quicker?

It should be possible to debug the x11 messages, but it looks really
low-level. Maybe this problem rings a bell to someone. :/

I am using the vanilla install of Fedora 25 so

Wayland display manager NOT X11 (I might change to X11 at next login and see if that changes the behaviour)

The Window manager is Gnome-Shell

Alt Tab works also... just not a fan because in gnome-shell it groups the windows under the main Evolution process as follows which still requires several steps to select the correct window

OK so I just tried X11 and the pop-under behaviour is not shown....

So maybe I can file a bug with the Wayland window manager people.

Feel free to in the issue tracker of your distribution. I'm running
Fedora 25 in GNOME on Wayland and can't reproduce such problems.
