Perhaps a future improvement would be the "get focus on render" that works
(sometimes) in Windows.

Context.... menu....
When it's docked and I right click on it, I get "refresh delay"
When it's undocked, I get "resize to 1024 x 768" and "refresh delay"

I don't see any other options, or anything in the menu hierarchy.

(I have Xfce desktop instead of Cinnamon, if that somehow makes a difference)

Once I figure out how --- Yes.

Deselect render is better, though with the new dual-behaviour, perhaps "set as
default / override file to render" and "switch to tab-controlled render" would
be better.   I don't think the space for that is that limited...

( One thing I have often thought of having for POV-Ray is having the render
window contents reflect what tab is selected.   So if a tab has already been
rendered, then display that latest render - if not, display --- nothing, POV-Ray
logo, the transparent checkerboard pattern, or a custom image. )
