Here's the output from my xrandr:

[marcos ~/.i3]$ xrandr 
Screen 0: minimum 8 x 8, current 3600 x 1080, maximum 16384 x 16384
VGA-0 connected 1680x1050+1920+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 495mm x 291mm

   640x480        75.0     72.8     59.9  
LVDS-0 connected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
   1600x900       59.9 +   50.0  
HDMI-0 connected 1920x1080+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 510mm x 290mm
   1920x1080      60.0*+   59.9     50.0     30.0     30.0     25.0  
   1680x1050      60.0  
   1280x1024      60.0  
   1280x960       60.0  
   1280x720       60.0     59.9     50.0  
   1152x864       60.0  
   1024x768       60.0  
   800x600        60.3  
   720x576        50.0  
   720x480        59.9  
   640x480        59.9     59.9

With this configuration I can move between windows on both displays with focus left/right. However, I would like to change the settings to have the VGA-0 display sit at the bottom of the virtual space and not the top. After I issue a:

[marcos ~/.i3]$ xrandr --output VGA-0 --auto --pos 1920x30

The outputs are exactly like I want them, but now I can't switch windows with focus left/right.

Any workaround or explanation?

This is a very similar issue to https://github.com/i3/i3/issues/771. You could open a separate ticket so that we don’t forget about it.
