Is it possible to hide and toggle the window titlebars in the same way as the i3bar guide:display mode

This is equivalent to changing the border style guide: changing border style but for all visible containers.

No, not without a simple third-party script, see

[](1) unfortunately it doesnt work with containers in tabbed mode (the title is still visible in tabbed and stacked mode), at this point I am not sure if I will use it this way and whether it make sense at all.

Any progress or usable scripts available?

Gulver, this works: `bindsym Control+Shift+1 [class="^.*"] border toggle`

This works for me:

bindsym Control+Shift+1 [class="^.*"] border toggle

If you want the title to be turned off automatically then do this as well:

for_window [class="^.*"] border pixel 1
