== Multiple modifiers section ==
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#From my experience, such "Tips & Tricks" pages is more likely become out of date and no one care.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.

== Lock screen on suspend ==
[[Xfce#Lock the screen]] gives an introduction to screen locking, but I can't get it to work with xfce4-power-manager on resuming from suspend. I've found little on this [https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=180985] [https://www.reddit.com/r/archlinux/comments/2eyt80/xfce_slock_not_locking_screen_when_suspending/] and an old bug for Xfce 4.8. [https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=738124]. Locking via {{ic|Ctrl+Alt+L}} works as expected (slock). Can others reproduce, and if yes, should I investigate further and file a bug upstream? Perhaps this could be related to the light-locker transition. -- [[User:Alad|Alad]] ([[User talk:Alad|talk]]) 10:52, 13 July 2015 (UTC)
