[SOLVED] Xfwm4 Alt+Tab switcher only on primary monitor/display 4.16

Hey all!

Great work with 4.16.

I noticed this change was made in 4.16:

- Improved Xfce Window manager (Xfwm4) now shows the Alt+Tab in the primary monitor for a multi-display setup.

How can one revert this change, or is possible to have an option for this?

I have a number of displays and the new version is a little rough on the neck.

Here is what the commit says:

If the user selected a primary monitor, the Alt+Tab window will only
appear on that monitor, otherwise on all of them.

More rationale follows.

Do you have a primary monitor identified/set?

I just turned off Primary Monitor in xfce4-display-settings and I can see the switcher on all displays again!

That was perfect, thank you very much ToZ.
