I pressed Mod+S and my windows flatted into a stack of bars. How can I undo this action or expand them back into their original configuration? The best route I found was to individually select each window and to Mod+Shift+arrow key to split horizontally. Surely there's a trick I'm missing?
You can switch between three modes:
Sfor stacking mode
Wfor tabbed mode
Efor standard mode (aka splith/splitv - the one you seek)
More info on the User Guide.
$mod+e should switch to tiling mode again.
Answers here are correct but you need to make sure you're switching modes from the same window where you started it. For a simple test, do the following.
- Open two windows in tiled mode
- Switch to window2
eon window2 # Doesn't work
won window2 # Doesn't work
- Switch to window1
eon window1 # Works!
won window1 # Works!
