Re: WinMove for window resize is "flickery"

Try setwindelay -1 This does not help I am afraid. So, are you saying that this q subroutine causes some kind of flickering, but that the w subroutine doesn't? You're right, I take that back.

howto "bookmark" and jump to a window

Use case: In a multi-task many-window workflow, I jump from one windows to another - for example while working on an excel sheet, I jump to email app, then jump to a browser window, search stuff, locate and copy a piece of data, then back to excel to paste and enter data.
