NAME

       Feel - AfterStep feel configuration

CONFIGURATION OPTIONS

       AnimateDeskChange

              That  setting  requests nice animation to be drawn over the desktop, during desktop
              switching.Comment it out to speed up desktop switching.

       AppsBackingStore

              Specifies that app windows should request backing store. X-terminals and low memory
              systems should avoid this as redrawing will be quicker than pulling the saved image
              from swap space. Backing store will always be faster than redraw on  machines  that
              have enough memory. This causes non-ICCCM compliance.

       AutoFocus

              Do not use. Obsolete.

       AutoRaise delay

              Specifies  the  delay  in  milliseconds  of focus a window must attain before being
              raised.

       AutoReverse 0|1|2

              Specifies the window Warping (also  called  alt-tabbing)  style.  0  (the  default)
              causes switching among windows in one direction. 1 causes a closed loop switching -
              #1->#2->#3->#4  then  #4->#3->#2->#1.  2  causes   an   open   loop   switching   -
              #1->#2->#3->#4 then #4->#1->#2->#3 etc.

       AutoTabThroughDesks

              In  conjunction  with  AutoReverse, this will Warp (alt-tab) through windows on all
              desks.

       BackingStore

              Specifies that decorations should request backing store. Refer to  AppsBackingStore
              for further details.

       CenterOnCirculate

              Specifies  that  when Warping (alt-tabbing), the desktop page containing the window
              to which the pointer is moving will be automatically selected  and  afterstep  will
              attempt  to  center  the  target  window  in the desktop viewport, rather than just
              flipping to the desktop the window resides in.

       CirculateSkipIcons

              Specifies that all icons should be skipped  when  Warping  (alt-  tabbing)  between
              windows.

       ClickTime

              Specifies  that  afterstep  should  consider  two  mouse  clicks  made within delay
              milliseconds to be a double mouse click, and  not  two  single  mouse  clicks.  The
              default delay is 150 milliseconds.

       ClickToFocus

              Specifies  that  the  keyboard  input (aka focus) stays with one window until a new
              window's  TitleBar  is  clicked   on,   or   gains   focus   through   Warping   or
              de-iconification.

              AfterStep will not switch focus following mouse pointer, but instead will switch it
              when window is explicitly clicked. This is the same as before. The only  difference
              is  that  AfterStep will not Raise window automagically, unless some other settings
              are set. Possible way to Raise window on focusing include:

              - set AutoRaise 0 in feel file ( delay of 0 )

              - bind mouse clicks to Raise or RaiseLower function in feel file.

              - set ClickToRaise flag in feel file.

       ClickToRaise

              Specifies that windows should be raised when a button is clicked in  the  titlebar,
              handle  (low bar), or application area. buttons specifies the list of buttons which
              triggers this function. In AutoRaise mode this will simply raise the window if  the
              click  is  before the delay specified in AutoRaise. In ClickToFocus mode, this will
              raise the window and give it focus.

       CoverAnimationSteps steps count

              CoverAnimationSteps is the  number  of  animation  steps  to  take  while  removing
              blue-tinted cover window.

       CoverAnimationType type

              CoverAnimationType  determines  what  type  of  animation  to  use  while  removing
              blue-tinted desktop cover - use values from 0 to 13.

       Cursor cursor_number cursor_type

              Specifies the cursor_type for the given cursor_number . Valid cursor_numbers are  0
              though  10  and  listed  in  all  the shipped feel.name files. The cursor_types are
              listed in the /usr/include/X11/cursorfont.h file.

       CustomCursor path

              Adds a custom cursor from the search paths. AfterStep searches the following  paths
              in  addition  to  the  system  Xorg/Xfree  paths: ~/.afterstep/desktop/cursors/ and
              $SHAREDIR/afterstep/desktop/cursors/.

              Note: under Xorg, this is probably  depreciated.  Current  Xorg  uses  the  Xcursor
              library to load cursor data from a single file.

       DecorateTransients

              Specifies  that  transient  windows  (pop-up  dialog boxes), which are normally not
              decorated, should be given the usual title and low bars. Note: some pop-up  windows
              and menus are not managed by the window manager, so do not get these decorations.

       DefaultWindowBox "windowbox_name"

              Window  boxes  are  processed  in  order  they  were  listed in config. If suitable
              windowbox could not be found for the window in the database file -  then  windowbox
              named in DefaultWindowBox will be forced.

       DeskAnimationSteps steps

              Specifies   how   many   animation   steps   should  be  rendered  while  switching
              desktops/removing blue cover. Reduce that number to speedup animation.

       DeskAnimationType value

              This requests particular type of animation to be rendered while switching desktops.
              Available values are in range of 0 to 12.

       DontMoveOff

              Specifies  that  windows  should  not  be  moved off or initially placed off of the
              desktop. A few programs will not work cor- rectly if you use this option. This only
              keeps windows from being completely lost off the edge of the desktop. It insists on
              keeping 16 pixels on the desktop, but does not attempt to keep the entire window on
              the desk.

       DontRestoreFocus

              Will not restore focus to the recently focused application wile switching desktops.

       EdgeResistance delay pixels

              Specifies  how  hard  it  should  be to change views within a desktop by moving the
              mouse over the edge of the screen, and how hard it hould be to move a  window  over
              the edge of a screen.

              The  delay  in  milliseconds, defines how long the pointer must spend at the screen
              edge before  that  view  becomes  current.  This  is  useful  in  conjunction  with
              EdgeScroll 100 100, so the views don't get switched accidently.

              The  pixels  defines how far over the edge a window must "appear" to move before it
              actually moves partially off the screen.

              Note that with EdgeScroll 0 0, it is still  possible  to  move  or  resize  windows
              across  the  edge  of  the  current  screen.  By  setting  the  pixels parameter of
              EdgeResistance  to  10000,  this  type  of  motion  is  impossible.  However,  with
              EdgeResistances  less  than  10000,  but  greater than 0, moving over pages becomes
              difficult but not impossible.

       EdgeScroll horizontal vertical

              Specifies the percentage of a page to scroll when the cursor hits  the  edge  of  a
              page.  Setting EdgeScroll to 0 0 will disable scrolling. Setting this option to 100
              100 will scroll whole pages. Set to 1000 1000, scrolling will wrap  around  at  the
              edge of the desktop. Both horizontal and vertical should be positive numbers.

       FollowTitleChanges

              That  will  force AfterStep to reread and merge all the hints and settings from the
              database files, whenever window changes either its name or icon name.

       Function

              Specifies  a  complex  function  definition  and  is  covered   in   the   built-in
              command/function.

              See Also: AS Function for further details.

       IconTitle

              Specifies  that a title should be displayed under an iconified app. The colors used
              are the ForeColor and BackColor of the  ButtonTitleFocus  in  the  look.name  file.
              Note: less space is left for the app's icon, so it will be resized acordingly. Only
              a portion of the icon title will be displayed until the icon gains focus, and  then
              the title "box" will expand to reveal the window's entire name.

        KeepIconWindows

              Specifies that applications should be allowed to specify their own icon windows.

       Key keyname  context  modifier  Command

              Specifies  a  key-stroke  binding  definition,  similar  to  Mouse . keyname is the
              keyboard    key    name.    Valid    keyname    's     are     found     in     the
              /usr/X11/include/X11/keysymdef.h  file  and  are specified here without the leading
              "XK_". The context describes where the mouse is resting when the keyname is pressed
              and  can be any combination of the following: R = Root window (main background) F =
              Window Frame (the BottomBar handle corners) S = Window TitleBar or  BottomBar  I  =
              Iconified Button (minimized window icon) T = Window TitleBar W = Application Window
              A = Any of the above except for TitleButtons  1-10  =  TitleButton  number  of  the
              TitleBar [ not very useful here ]
               modifier is the key-stroke combination associated with the context entry, to issue
              the Command . Valid modifier 's are:

                 N = No modifiers
                 C = Control
                 S = Shift
                 M = Meta
                 A = Any modifier

               Command can be any afterstep  Built-in command/ function, Popup  or  user  defined
              Function .

              See Also: AS Function for further details.

       MenusHigh

              Specifies  that  any  pop-up  menu's submenu should appear at the top of the parent
              menu instead of starting at the point in the parent window where the  submenu  item
              lies.

       Mouse button  context  modifier  Command

              Specifies  a  mouse binding definition. button is the mouse button number [0, 1, 2,
              or 3]. If button is zero, then any  mouse  button  invoked  issues  the  Command  .
              context  describes where the mouse click occurred and can be any combination of the
              following:

                 R = Root window (main background)
                 F = Window Frame (the BottomBar handle corners)
                 S = Window TitleBar or BottomBar
                 I = Iconified Button (minimized window icon)
                 T = Window TitleBar
                 W = Application Window
                 A = Any of the above except for TitleButtons 1-10 = TitleButton  number  of  the
              TitleBar, corresponds to the
                     entry in the  look.name  file

              The action to be taken by the defined TitleButton is defined in the feel.name file.
              Defining a TitleButton without having a corresponding entry in the  feel.name  file
              will cause the TitleButton icon to be displayed, but not react when pressed.

               modifier is the key-stroke combination associated with the context entry, to issue
              the Command . Valid modifier 's are:

                 N = No modifiers
                 C = Control
                 S = Shift
                 M = Meta
                 A = Any modifier

               Command can be any afterstep  Built-in command/ function, Popup  or  user  defined
              Function .

              See Also: AS Function for further details.

       NoPPosition

              Species  that afterstep should ignore the PPosition field when placing new windows,
              in other words, windows can't choose where to place themselves.  Adherence  to  the
              PPosition field is required for some applications.

       NoSnapKey key

              AfterStep  now  has  a  feature that "snaps" windows to different desktop features,
              such as edges of other windows and edge of the screen. To disable it temorarily you
              can  press  and  hold Shift key. Use this setting to request different modifier key
              instead of Shift.

       OpaqueMove %

              Specifies the maximum size window where opaque window movement should be used. % is
              percent  of  the  total  screen area. Set to 0, all windows will be moved using the
              traditional rubber-band outline. Set to 100, all windows  will  be  move  as  solid
              windows.  The  default  is  5  which  allows small windows to be moved in an opaque
              manner, but large windows to be moved as rubber-bands. Using this option with large
              values can slow down video response on slower systems.

       OpaqueResize %

              Specifies  the  maximum  size  window  where  opaque  resizing should be used. % is
              percent of the total screen area. Set to 0, all windows will be resized  using  the
              traditional rubber-band out- line. Set to 100, all windows will be resized as solid
              windows. The default is 5 which allows small windows to be  resized  in  an  opaque
              manner,  but  large  windows  to be resized as rubber-bands. Using this option with
              large values can slow down video response on slower systems.

       PagingDefault 0|1

              Specifies if Paging should be enabled (1) or disabled (0). Paging is set to enabled
              by default.

       PersistentMenus

              Right  now if you try to open a menu when its already opened - that will cause menu
              to close. To disable this behaviour and instead pop-up a  menu  again  -  use  this
              setting.

       Popup

              Specifies a menu popup definition and is covered in the built-in command/function.

              See Also: AS Function for further details.

       RandomPlacement

              Specifies  that  windows  which  would  normally  require  user  inter- vention for
              placement be automagically placed in ever-so- slightly random locations.

       RecentSubmenuItems number_of_items

              Defines maximum number of recently used submenu items to be listed under menu item.
              Set to 0 to disable feature. Default is 4.

       SaveUnders

              Specifies  that  afterstep  frames  should  request  saveunders.  This  will  cause
              afterstep to save those portions of windows that are not visible to system  memory.
              This can significantly improve the performance during opaque moves, but it causes a
              significant increase in memory usage. This can also cause garbled display with some
              applications.

       ScreenEdgeAttraction distance

              Defines  distance  from  which  window  will be attracted to the screen edge, while
              being interactively moved/resized.

       ShadeAnimationSteps steps

              Defines how many steps to use to render animation when window gets shaded/unshaded.

       ShadeAnimationSteps steps

              Defines how many steps to use to render animation when window gets shaded/unshaded.

       SloppyFocus

              Specifies that windows retain focus until the mouse moves  to  another  window,  or
              Warping causes another window to gain focus.

              SloppyFocus has no effect if ClickToFocus is also specified.

       SmartPlacement

              Specifies  that  windows be placed in areas that no other windows occupy, otherwise
              user intervention becomes required for placement. Have fun,  try  specifying  both.
              :-)

       StickyIcons

              Specifies  that  icons  should  stick  to  the  screen's glass and fol- low it from
              desk/view to desk/view.

       StubbornIconPlacement

              Specifies that icons should avoid being  hidden  behind  windows  placed  over  the
              IconBox by moving themselves around (dancing icons).

       StubbornIcons

              Specifies  that  icons  should  uniconify to their original desk. By default, icons
              uniconify to the current desk.

       StubbornPlacement

              Specifies that new windows should avoid being placed over icons.

       SuppressIcons

              Specifies that no icon should be shown for any window being iconified,  similar  to
              NoIcon.

       WinListHideIcons

              When set, Icons in internal WindowList ( the window that pops up if you right click
              on root window) will not be shown.

       WinListSortOrder 0/1/2/3

              Arranges WinList entries based-on the following qualifiers: 0 - circulations  order
              (default),  1 - Alpha order, 2 - Stacking order (unimplemented), 3 - creation order
              (unimplemented).

       WindowBox "windowbox_name"

              WindowBox defines an area on the screen/virtual desktop into which a window will be
              placed on startup.

              See Also: Feel WindowBox definition for further details.

       WindowEdgeAttraction distance

              Defines  distance  from  which window will be attracted to the other window's edge,
              while being interactively moved/resized.

        XorValue value

              Specifies the value with which bits are XOR'ed when doing rubber-band window moving
              or resizing. Setting this value is a trial-and-error process.

        Xzap number

              Specifies the horizontal offset of the cursor when warping. This offset is relative
              to the upper-left corner of the window being warped to.

        Yzap number

              Specifies the vertical offset of the cursor when warping. This offset  is  relative
              to the upper-left corner of the window being warped to.
