8 Thanks a lot for creating this. I wish more people paid attention to the borders as i really feel like with 99% of the themes the windows are impossible to resize.

Only thing i'd change is, the minimize, maximize and close buttons have some space around them and don't extend fully to the border, making it a bit cumbersome when trying to hit them to close the window.

Would you consider doing this for the Qogir-win-dark variant of the Qogir theme?

Many many thanks already :)
However, maybe this is something obvious that i don't get, but doesn't the Qogir-win-dark theme already have the buttons expanding to the very edges? Both vertically and horizontally. Couldn't you look at how they did it? I'd do it myself but i barely know how anything works with xfwm.

It does. The reason it does is because the border is one pixel wide. Increasing the border increases the space between the buttons and the edge of the window because the border surrounds the buttons.

Ah i see. Real shame you can't have both. But thanks for the explanation.

Hey, thanks for the feedback.

I'll take a look at Qogir-win-dark soon.

I can see about making the buttons closer together, but I don't know how to extend them fully to the border. I haven't seen this done in elsewhere.

Unfortunately themes designed for other desktop environments don't always translate over well because many modern themes use a one pixel border and xfwm doesn't support invisible resize regions.
