Common Desktop Environment: Style Guide and Certification Checklist

Window (Document) Clustering








Windows that are closely related in supporting a particular task should be placed in a window cluster. Secondary windows are automatically placed in a window cluster with the associated primary window. Windows in a window cluster are stacked together, minimized or normalized together, and kept in the same workspace. 

Note -

Currently the only mechanism for forming a window cluster that is supported by the Window Manager is to indicate a primary-secondary relationship.
