 +  * The Display dialog appears upon pressing Ctrl-F7 to adjust the settings of an additional display. It would be nice to have the option to add the display by "​Extending it to the Left" in addition to the Right option... ​
  
   * Implement support for high-density (DPI) displays through e.g. a meta-theme that sets large fonts, panel size, icons. All of these are already doable separately, but it would be nice to be able to change all these related settings in one place.   * Implement support for high-density (DPI) displays through e.g. a meta-theme that sets large fonts, panel size, icons.

   * Provide a way to undo changes made in settings. I realize that a Cancel button is anathema to the instant-apply conventions used by the XFCE dialog boxes, but some dialogs provide the user with dozens of edit choices that are not easily remembered by humans. For example, say I want to experiment with the compositor settings to see what each of the sliders affect. I'd have to take a screen-shot of the dialog box prior to making any changes if I want to restore the sliders back to their original positions.   * Provide a way to undo changes made in settings.

   * Allow a Super hotkey for showing the whisker menu or application menu that doesn'​t break Super + X hotkeys for things like "Show Desktop"​ and "Open File Manager"​. ​ What I mean is that I want to tap the windows key on my keyboard to open the whisker menu, which is possible now. However when that hotkey is set now, it makes it so the hotkeys of window + D for show desktop and window + t for open terminal don't work any more.   * Allow a Super hotkey for showing the whisker menu or application menu that doesn'​t break Super + X hotkeys for things like "Show Desktop"​ and "Open File Manager"​. ​ What I mean is that I want to tap the windows key on my keyboard to open the whisker menu, which is possible now.

         * Ah, yes, I didn't know about that previously. But it's not really what I'm looking for... seems that expands the window to fill the screen, without the borders & decorations. What I miss from E16 is that Ctrl+Enter enlarges the window (so the dimensions are still the same -- my terminal emulator is still 80x25, but appears larger.) That's handy for a small screen like mine.         * Ah, yes, I didn't know about that previously.

-* Port Unity'​s HUD functionality to Xfwm without dependency on unity-gtk-module (i.e. distro-agnostic). Pretty please! +  ​* Port Unity'​s HUD functionality to Xfwm without dependency on unity-gtk-module (i.e. distro-agnostic). Pretty please!

-* Allow window preview when hoovering over a window button. As <​Alt-Tab>​ switcher already handles previews i don't think this would be too hard to achieve.+
  
-Ditch xfwm4 in favor of mutterxfwm4 has tearing (even with composition enabled) and compton is unmaintained and currently has problems with gtk 3 CSDs and shadows in QT applications. Xfwm also doesn'​t ​allow decent resizing on modern displays because of the 1 px border. It also seems very unlikely that the xfce team will ever make xf4wm compatible with wayland. Performance wise they are almost the same. This would need changes in xfwm4-settings and a fix for the workspace transition.+  ​Allow window preview when hoovering over a window buttonAs <​Alt-Tab>​ switcher already handles previews i don'​t ​think this would be too hard to achieve.

 +  * Add an option so Desktop Margins could be ignored when tiling windows (both by mouse and keyboard). When you tile windows, normally, you want to use all available space. This is very good for ultra wide screens where you want floating windows in the middle section of the screen but tiled windows to use all the space.
