I've only been on i3 for a couple of weeks and am loving it... have even turned a couple of friends onto it too! So thanks!

One frustrating issue tho... When I hit resize (mod+r) the workspace "resize" appears but none of the resizing keys work. The screen flickers but nothing moves. Dragging with the mouse does nothing either. My resize is the default config.

I am using i3 4.7.2-1 on Arch.

Any help gratefully appreciated.

update: ok... of course as soon as I posted I realised my mistake... I thought i could resize in all modes, not just floating. And i hadn't tried floating... which proves to work!

Actually, you should be able to resize tiled windows, too. Please consider opening a bug report.

and now it's working??? I think I was expecting to be able to resize when there is just one window in the workspace...

Ahh, yes that would not be possible. In i3 tiled windows always take up the whole screen. Resizing just moves the border between two windows/containers, but the screen borders stay fixed.
