Thanks that seems to work for mupdf (and llpp).
Do you plan to add the missing support to Layout.Fullscreen and
remove the need for partially importing EwmhDesktops?
I don't even seem to require the isFullscreen -->
fullscreenManageHook or doFullFloat rule.
I didn't manage to add a doFloat rule for llpp but when I make
it manually floating by moving the window with the mouse
and go fullscreen and back by holding 'f' pressed it seems to
somehow forget the size or not manage to act fast enough
because llpp is more heavy on redrawing the window.
Does that make any sense? It happens that llpp's window
can be made zoomed or or too big on return rom fullscreen
if you do it repeatedly by holding 'f' pressed. mupdf doesn't
have that problem. This is not as important but maybe it's
useful for you.
