Hi all.

I'm learning Blender and I was surprised the Alt modifier didn't work. Now I know why — should have known earlier but, well, didn't take too long to figure it out anyway.

So my question is: rather than change the system-wide Alt+Click window tweak (which I'd like to keep as I'm used to it), does Xfce (my desktop environment) support that change on a per-window basis? [EDIT: In which case] Either disable or change it will do.

Thanks in advance for any hint/suggestion and a happy new year 8) .

found something: https://forum.xfce.org/viewtopic.php?id=2989 and: https://askubuntu.com/questions/270032/how-do-i-disable-window-move-with-alt-left-mouse-button-in-xubuntu

Don't know if this helps, but I think the direction is the right one. Best would be to write a script wich detects the application and then decides what to do.

I found similar threads too. They however hint at disabling or changing the behaviour of the easy click feature globally instead of a per-window basis, which is not what I want. They're pretty old threads, too and Xfce has evolved since, I expect[ed] even more flexibility...
