Here's a little tidbit I found that may be worth adding to the documentation (although I don't know where it would best fit in):
 
: The setting for easy_click in xfwm4.xml is the name of the modifier key.  But what if you want to use multiple modifiers?  I want Ctrl+Alt to be the easy_click modifier.  After reading through the source to see how it parsed the setting, I found that I could get Ctrl+Alt to work by using this line in the config file:
 
<property name="easy_click" type="string" value="Ctrl&amp;gt;&amp;lt;Alt"/>
 
:* After reading the XML file, it will have the modifier string as "Ctrl&gt;&lt;Alt".
 
:* When xfwm4 formats that as a modifier (by adding angle brackets around it), it becomes "&lt;Ctrl&gt;&lt;Alt&gt;".
 
:* Gtk parses the pair of modifiers correctly and it works as expected.

:How about creating a subsection in [[Xfce#Tips & Tricks]] for it, perhaps titled ''Using multiple modifiers'' or something along those lines? -- [[User:Chazza|Chazza]] ([[User talk:Chazza|talk]]) 07:30, 9 June 2015 (UTC)
 
 
:: <s> -1 from me for split pages. Reason:
 
#From my experience, such "Tips & Tricks" pages is more likely become out of date and no one care.
 
#It is hard for translation team to follow page split(merge).

:::I'm a tad confused by your response, Fengchao. Are you saying that articles should not have Tips and tricks sections? They are mentioned in [[Help:Style#"Tips and tricks" sections]] and the OP's suggestion seems appropriate for this. -- [[User:Chazza|Chazza]] ([[User talk:Chazza|talk]]) 07:41, 12 June 2015 (UTC)
 
 
::::I think this is just a simple misunderstanding: this discussion is not about splitting the Tips and tricks section :)
 
::::I'm +1 for adding the multiple modifiers trick under [[Xfce#Tips and tricks]] by the way.
