xfce panel always on top

I am using Debian Testing xfce 4.4 rc1. The bottom panel is always on top of other windows. Is this a setting so it is under all other windows when I bring something like Abiword or Firefox to the front?

Nope you can't.
You can turn on autohide, so the panel is not visible when you're not using it.

Well first this is not the 'idea' of a panel so most likely this option won't be added. Anyway we never ignore ideas, so you can file a feature request in the bugzilla so we won't forget :razz:.

Remember Alt+F11 -> REAL Fullscreen

Perfect for reading a homepage or write a document.

Re: xfce panel always on top

Do you mean this feature is welcome/patch will be accepted?

IMHO the best way is to combine it with "don't reserve space on borders". The latter feels awkward (not to say buggy) with panel always on top of other windows.

OTOH, LXDE panel splits these options into:
- "Make window managers treat the panel as dock"
- "Reserve space, and not covered by maximized windows"
