    No? Huh. It was when I last tried it. Which is when it was slower than dirt. I’ll check it again and edit this post when I’m at a computer, or more likely a Mac user will reply with more details.

    Still, Potato visibly scrolling doesn’t surprise. Well, didn’t surprise.

    As far as I know, Potato has always been built on Tcl/Tk?

    As may be, but it ran in a Python wrapper, which is what I was remembering.

    Welp, it won't run on 10.13.5, so nevermind.

    So there you go. Maybe it can be compiled from source, but I'm not going through that to see how fast it is. It was a distracting tangent anyway.

    I don't suppose there's any way to tab between your main window and your spawn window instead of having to physically click the spawn window to see your channel text, is there?

    I know it's really stupid, but it would just make looking at my coms a lot easier and quicker to switch between coms and my main window if I could just alt+tab between them. But I'm not sure there's an ability to do that.

    @testament I don't use spawn windows, but does ctrl+tab do it?
