gridmove safe mode is not working with drag to edge (I don't know if that's intended)
You mean that with safe mode enabled, you can move windows with drag to edge that you can't with drag on titlebar? I just tested it and can't..
Latest build seems to have fixed that - at least now it doesn't do that anymore.

drag with middle button clashes with other applications needing the middle-button
(e.g. I use it to resize pictures in IE using middleclick+srollup-down)
What about middleclick on title bar only?
I know about that. But to be honest, it's way easier than drag on titlebar, and to have drag with middleclick on titlebar, it'd be almost the same as drag with left button on title. Thus, the best solution is to add the annoying window to the exceptions (present in the latest build)
Yeah - but ... but ... I don't know of a better solution  :(

with save mode on I can't resize some popups although they are resizable
(indicated by the resize handle - see attachment (can't you check for that resize
handle since it indicates (standard behaviour) a window being intended for resize)
Now that's strange... Is that a skinned window?
I can't improve the current detection (it even wasn't me who found how to do it!), but i suppose that's caused because someone is using a strnge, non-standard method for resizing windows :(
I'll make screenshots if it happens again.

how about moving settings to new tab in "settings" (about/help)
instead of making the right-click menu bigger each time sth new gets added
I've made several atempts at doing this, but still haven't found the courage to complete it. I will someday. (making GUIs is a royal PITA)
With Visual Studio it's done in a few minutes.

when dragging the window to a trigger area holding the mousebutton, then
rightclicking you can change templates - but only some - why?
That's because there's a cooler way to do what you mentioned ;)
There's an option named "set grid order". That allows you to define which windows appear in that rotation :)
Yeah, seen that option - but didn't bring it into context (now I feel stupid). So that's that then.

One problem though. Sometimes the grids get messed up and you have to
click reload so that problem that messes the grids up has to be solved first.
How messed up do they get? what happens exactly?
See attached pics.

The trigger area should only work starting right of the titlebaricon ending left of the minimize button,
but if you look at Resize.jpg and Grid.jpg you'll see what I mean
This is also a problem when I'm trying to click on a button in Miranda... always messes up the size
Maybe an undo last window in the rightclick menu?
Sorry, but i don't see what you mean...
(there's a "last size" grid element that does that undo ;). You can find it in the edge grid template).
If you look at the small pic "Resize.jpg" I'm just about to click the resize (enlarge?) button
(therefore "Vergrößern" as popupinfo) - and ind "Grid.jpg" you can see that that (because the
button is within the 100px) this activates the grid and the window is resized according to
the trigger area the window was in at the moment.

Thanks for the grids!!
You're welcome.
If you can't give money - at least you should try to give sth back by participating.

Hope you like my grid...
(basically 4 different templates in one - each quarter represents the whole screen)

Ok, I'm back.

I must have mixed up the 3-part grid somehow - because now the 3-Part and 3-Part Reverse grids are identical  >:(
So I did it again.

I also converted the Dual-Screen grid, but maybe you have to make some minor adjustments, because I just guessed the
trigger area for the "1/3 full height" trigger to 1/60 of the screenwidth (I guess the original has some fixed width)

There are some things I wanted to share:
  • On this page you should post a link to irc://irc.servercentral.net/#donationcoder 
  • gridmove safe mode is not working with drag to edge (I don't know if that's intended)
  • drag with middle button clashes with other applications needing the middle-button
    (e.g. I use it to resize pictures in IE using middleclick+srollup-down)
    What about middleclick on title bar only?
  • with save mode on I can't resize some popups although they are resizable
    (indicated by the resize handle - see attachment (can't you check for that resize
    handle since it indicates (standard behaviour) a window being intended for resize)
  • how about moving settings to new tab in "settings" (about/help)
    instead of making the right-click menu bigger each time sth new gets added
  • when dragging the window to a trigger area holding the mousebutton, then
    rightclicking you can change templates - but only some - why?
    It would be cool if you got rid of the hardcoded templates, making this function
    switch through all .grid files, because then you could delete all unneded templates
    and switch through the ones you're actually using

    One problem though. Sometimes the grids get messed up and you have to
    click reload so that problem that messes the grids up has to be solved first.

That's about it for now.  :-[

Keep up the good work :Thmbsup:

(Hope you like my grid v0.2)

Grids.rar - 2 Kb

Here's the 3-part Grid (and one I made)
the dualscreen grid will follow as soon as I find the time (tomorrow?).

Another thing I want to mention regarding the resizing behaviour:
You shouldn't be able to resize windows' without resize handle
(alerts, ...) (lower right corner).
Has this been discussed?

Haven't been welcomed this nice in a forum for a long time.

Thanks.

The explanation is perfectly fine - you don't even need it if you just look at the existing grids,
the thing is just that I'm soo lazy  :-[

I haven't really thought about what layout exactly I want... I just think if you had an editor
it would be really simple to come up with all sorts of useful grids just by playing with it.

Before I forget to mention it - Thanks, jgpaiva, for this program.
I've liked the concept of Acer's GridVista - but it was just missing the customizable layout
(and I didn't like the extra buttons), and have been looking eversince for a grid
program - took me about a year till I finally stumbled upon GridMove.

btw. I've read that you're in the process of converting the existing hardcoded grids to
.grid files - do you by any chance need help with that?

Since this is somewhat complicated... how about an "edit grid" option within GridMove?

What you would need:
edit mode:
- draggable lines
- show trigger areas
- button to add a rectangle for grid/trigger area
- function to discard/save changes
- ...
