remove scratchpad?

Is there a way to undo a scratchpad mark on a window without doing the toggle floating mode switching? Something like remove scratchpad? If not, would you consider such an addition helpful? I know I'd use it, but I want to check with the community first.

No, there is no such thing. And given that floating disable (or toggle) removes a window from scratchpad, we don’t need another command to remove a window from scratchpad.

If you are primarily using floating windows with i3, you are doing it wrong, see also

If you insist on using floating windows for some reason, consider using this in your config:

# remove a floating window from scratchpad
bindsym $mod+x floating disable; floating enable
edit flag offensive delete link more


That's a trivial way to do what I want without even touching the code. Thx!
