 +? Focus model
 +! A focused window receives the keyboard and mouse input. You have the choice between two focus models :
 +  ? Click to focus
 +  ! Select this option if you want a window to receive the focus only when you click anywhere on its frame.
 +  ? Focus follows mouse
 +  ! Select this option if you want a window to receive the focus as soon as the mouse pointer is over its frame.
 +? New window focus
 +! Selecting this option will automatically give the focus to newly created windows, without the need to click or move the mouse pointer. ​
 +? Raise on focus
 +! If this option is selected, the frame of a newly focused window will automatically appear over all other frames, after an amount of time that you can adjust with the {gui>​delay} slider. ​
 +? Raise on click
 +! Choose this option if you want a window to pass over the others when you click anywhere on its frame. If this option is not selected, you will have to click somewhere on its decorations (title bar, borders or corners) to raise it.

 +? Windows snapping
 +! You can choose the windows borders to be attracted by the borders of other windows, or by the screen edges, when they are moved. The distance from which this effect will be applied can be specified with the {gui>​Distance} slider.
 +? Wrap workspaces
 +! Select the first option if you want to switch to the next workspace when the mouse pointer reaches the screen edges. Select the second one if you want the same behaviour while dragging a window. You can specify the screen edges resistance using the corresponding slider.
 +? Opaque move and resize
 +! Two options allow you to choose if the content of a window will appear or not, when you move or resize it (not displaying the content will save some system resources).
 +? Double click action
 +! Select what must be the behaviour of the window manager when you double-click on the title bar of a window: shade window, hide window, maximize window or none.
