@ianyh what do you think about using #127 to help with this? It might be cool to have a feature (even just for debugging) that draws a border around each window Amethyst "sees". They could be color-coded to indicate which windows are un-managed due to user settings (vs being framed). This would help e.g. to see whether a floating window was being affected by settings vs not being presented as a "window" by the OS.

@NathanRightnour it looks like the windows in question are some form of "tool window" (note the shorter-than-usual title bar), so it's possible that the OS doesn't have control over them in the way that you'd expect. In some ways, that's a good thing: some types of tool windows simply disappear when their "parent" window loses focus, and that would make for some very jarring rearrangements of windows as you switch back and forth between apps. That doesn't mean we can't improve things (see my previous comment), but it might not be possible to directly address the problem you have.
