Issue with xfce4-terminal --drop-down

I have assigned a keybinding “F4” to openbox to run xfce4-terminal --drop-down.
when i press the assigned key the terminal launches. but it doesn’t go up when i press the key perfectly. i have to press it for 3/4 times to work.
I have seen the same problem with other users, they have come around the problem by marking the “Use shortcut key to focus visible window” option in the terminal’s preference.
But that solution is not working in my case.
I have come up with an workaround, if i keep the terminal preference window open the it work. so i just keep that open in another desktop :slight_smile:
