I am trying to display the scratchpad, but only when the super key + alt is pressed. When I do this the scratchpad is shown but when releasing the key, the scratchpad is not hidden.

bindsym Super_L+Alt_L scratchpad show
bindsym --release $mod+Alt_L scratchpad

To try something simpler I also tried to just use Super_L as the key but this didn't work. Do you have any ideas?

-edit I found that when I tap Alt_L, the scratchpad is shown/hidden, this is actually nice and I think I will use this. But please let me know if you have any answer for this anyway.
