 +  * Wish there was a checkbox someplace in settings manager to globally turn off tooltips. Command:
 +echo "​gtk-enable-tooltips = 0" >> ~/​.gtkrc-2.0

 +  * 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.

   * 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.   * Add an option so Desktop Margins could be ignored when tiling windows (both by mouse and keyboard).

 +  * It would be great to have a user option for remembering the position of the mouse pointer across desktop switches — so that when I go onto another desktop for a while and then return, I have the mouse pointer waiting where I left it, not where it happened to remain on the other desktop. ​ It would be a great help in situations where the exact mouse position is critically important (e.g. GIMP).
