While I've never heard that term used before (I'm an old command-line
guy), thanks for the information. It's never too late to learn something
new. I did find this as a function of Tk, but all other references I
found related to Ubuntu and other Linux distro's are in the realm of
sound and camera apps.
But, if that is the correct term, then, yes, that is how I'd like to
configure my workspaces in the panner.
