The only way I think of is using the 'pertag' patch and manually setting the layout for the specific tag.
that's exactly the way I do it at the moment. I mean the manual way is just a one key combination to change it from tile to monocle but why not automatized if this is possible.
Anyway perhaps somebody knows a solution for this.
I would like this behaviour as well. I'll look into this tonight and see if I can write a patch for this.
Been a while since I've written anything in C, so don't get your hopes up
there's no place like ~/
After some testing and if this works well, I suggest we see if the maintainer of the pertag patch will include your modification.
