I currently have 2 plank's running, but they show all of the workspaces current windows.

I need them to show only the current windows tasks.

This question has an open bounty worth +50 reputation from Jamie Hutber ending in 11 hours.

This question has not received enough attention.

I believe this just isn't something that Plank supports. Which is sad, but maybe I can get a firm answer.


If you check your settings for plank, there is an option, under the Behaviors tab that specifies: Restrict to Workspace, This may help you in the right direction

  • Thank you, but I am after window not the workspace. I have 2 monitors and a plank on each monitor. – Jamie Hutber 9 hours ago

If you Ctrl+Right-Click on the Plank you'd like to set this on, you'll find a "Restrict to Workspace" toggle that should handle this function for you.
