    1. 4.30. Focus on window activation If a window is activated, e.g., via google-chrome www.google.com, it may request to take focus. Since this might not be preferable, different reactions can be configured. Note that this might not affect windows that are being opened. To prevent new windows from being focused, see [no_focus]. Syntax: focus_on_window_activation smart|urgent|focus|none The different modes will act as follows: smart This is the default behavior. If the window requesting focus is on an active workspace, it will receive the focus. Otherwise, the urgency hint will be set. urgent The window will always be marked urgent, but the focus will not be stolen. focus The window will always be focused and not be marked urgent. none The window will neither be focused, nor be marked urgent.
    1. XWayland programs will be blurry when scaling is more than 1. There's still no way around this.I've been using Sway in scale 2 mode for a while, but I recently switched to scale 1, because I started using certain XWayland programs on a daily basis.My solution is to scale the fonts instead. So, for example:GTK apps can be scaled with gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface text-scaling-factor 1.33Firefox can be additionally scaled by adjusting the layout.css.devPixelsPerPx property in about:config, this will scale the UI and also zoom page contentThe XWayland programs that i use (Godot) provide their own way of scaling the UI in the settings, many "heavy" XWayland programs let you change the UI scalingIncreased terminal fonts, etc...I've been happily using this setup both on my laptop (161 DPI) and on desktop (183 DPI) for a while and it works great for me.

      The word calculated carries overtones of manipulation without emotion or concern
