Hi AxCrusik,

I still haven't upgraded my home computer to windows 10, so I'm sorry I cannot reproduce that problem. Still, wouldn't it be a solution to build grids that slightly overlap as a workaround for that problem?

Hi Michel, if the GridMove icon is there, then you can right-click it to check the options :)

Hi Michel, I'm sorry GridMove didn't work for you, but with so few details it's really hard to be helpful.
Could you check if you find the icon tomos mentioned on the bottom-right corner of your screen (the notification area)?
If not, when you press the windows key and type 'gridmove', does it show up on the list? After running it, it still doesn't show up on the notification area?

Hi!

I think the problem is with TriggerRight. It should be [Monitor2Right] - ([Monitor2Width]/2).

Hi Donkzilla,

Unfortunately, pokerstars windows ignore the messages that GridMove uses to move windows (they use some kind of special custom framework to build the GUI). This means there is no way for GridMove to move these kinds of windows, sorry.

KLR71, apparently according to this, there's a "Windows Hotkey Explorer" which may help you find if there's another program using F12.

@tomos: thanks a lot for your help!

Hi KLR71,

I'm not sure why that would happen... Can someone with win7 x64 chime in to tell us if they can reproduce this issue?

Mike,
I think you're probably using the "edge trigger", and that's why you must move windows to the edge for GridMove to be triggered. If you change for the "Drag On Window Title" or ""Drag With Middle Button" methods, it might be easier to achieve what you're trying to do.

Then that's precisely the problem, that default templates only work up to 3 monitors.
I agree that if you're only using that template, the win+left/right is probably a better solution than GridMove (at the time GridMove was developed, that option didn't exist ;) ).

If you'd like to use GridMove for more than 3 monitors, just edit the grid file you're using, copy and paste the groups for one of monitor3 and change them to monitor4, and update the number of groups at the top.

As an example, the 2 part grid (https://github.com/j...Part%20Vertical.grid) would be something like this:

[Groups]

NumberOfGroups = 12

[1]

  TriggerTop   = [Monitor1Top]
  TriggerLeft  = [Monitor1Left] + [Monitor1Width] / 2 - 50
  TriggerBottom= [Monitor1Top] + 35
  TriggerRight = [Monitor1Left] + [Monitor1Width] / 2 + 50
 
  GridTop   = Restore
  GridLeft  = Restore
  GridBottom= Restore
  GridRight = Restore

[2]

  TriggerTop   = [Monitor1Top]
  TriggerLeft  = [Monitor1Left]
  TriggerBottom= [Monitor1Bottom]
  TriggerRight = [Monitor1Left] + [Monitor1Width] /2

 
[3]

  TriggerTop   = [Monitor1Top]
  TriggerLeft  = [Monitor1Left] + [Monitor1Width] /2
  TriggerBottom= [Monitor1Bottom]
  TriggerRight = [Monitor1Right]


[4]

  TriggerTop   = [Monitor2Top]
  TriggerLeft  = [Monitor2Left] + [Monitor2Width] / 2 - 50
  TriggerBottom= [Monitor2Top] + 35
  TriggerRight = [Monitor2Left] + [Monitor2Width] / 2 + 50
 
  GridTop   = Restore
  GridLeft  = Restore
  GridBottom= Restore
  GridRight = Restore

[5]

  TriggerTop   = [Monitor2Top]
  TriggerLeft  = [Monitor2Left]
  TriggerBottom= [Monitor2Bottom]
  TriggerRight = [Monitor2Left] + [Monitor2Width] /2

 
[6]

  TriggerTop   = [Monitor2Top]
  TriggerLeft  = [Monitor2Left] + [Monitor2Width] /2
  TriggerBottom= [Monitor2Bottom]
  TriggerRight = [Monitor2Right]

[7]

  TriggerTop   = [Monitor3Top]
  TriggerLeft  = [Monitor3Left] + [Monitor3Width] / 2 - 50
  TriggerBottom= [Monitor3Top] + 35
  TriggerRight = [Monitor3Left] + [Monitor3Width] / 2 + 50
 
  GridTop   = Restore
  GridLeft  = Restore
  GridBottom= Restore
  GridRight = Restore

[8]

  TriggerTop   = [Monitor3Top]
  TriggerLeft  = [Monitor3Left]
  TriggerBottom= [Monitor3Bottom]
  TriggerRight = [Monitor3Left] + [Monitor3Width] /2

 
[9]

  TriggerTop   = [Monitor3Top]
  TriggerLeft  = [Monitor3Left] + [Monitor3Width] /2
  TriggerBottom= [Monitor3Bottom]
  TriggerRight = [Monitor3Right]

[10]

  TriggerTop   = [Monitor4Top]
  TriggerLeft  = [Monitor4Left] + [Monitor4Width] / 2 - 50
  TriggerBottom= [Monitor4Top] + 35
  TriggerRight = [Monitor4Left] + [Monitor4Width] / 2 + 50
 
  GridTop   = Restore
  GridLeft  = Restore
  GridBottom= Restore
  GridRight = Restore

[11]

  TriggerTop   = [Monitor4Top]
  TriggerLeft  = [Monitor4Left]
  TriggerBottom= [Monitor4Bottom]
  TriggerRight = [Monitor4Left] + [Monitor4Width] /2

 
[12]

  TriggerTop   = [Monitor4Top]
  TriggerLeft  = [Monitor4Left] + [Monitor4Width] /2
  TriggerBottom= [Monitor4Bottom]
  TriggerRight = [Monitor4Right]

I copied groups 7, 8 and 9 into 10, 11 and 12, updated them to monitor4, and then updated the NumberOfGroups at the top from 9 to 12.

Hi!

I never had access to that many monitors, it might happen that GirdMove doesn't actually work for that many screens.
However, I doubt that. Most likely, you're just using a grid which isn't configured for more than 3 monitors (most aren't). Can you tell me which one you're using?

Upssss
AVG detect .exe file as threat. I download anyway.
 :-*
It really saddens me that antivirus programs just lazily flag anything written in autohotkey as viruses :(

12
PS: thanks for the syntax coloring file! (even though I'm more of a Vim fan myself ;) )

13
Sorry, fastmove is just moving windows with the keyboard. I think I had a sudden attack of laziness and decided to stop documenting there.  :-[

14
only moves to the last position with the same last used grid size... no maximizing in either direction when this happens.
OK. That's strange because the part of the code that restores, first tries to maximize in each direction. I suppose that if it somehow was inadvertently entering that part of the code, it might enable either of the three.

actually it would be a cool feature, if I could activate it when I needed it :)
You know that you can use the "restore" element for that?

but when you're trying to work and this thing happens a few times (I think sometimes it is a one off thing , sometimes it will happen a few times in a few minutes or less but I guess that's because of my work habits - when I'm doing a lot of middle clicking in the browser, it is more likely to occur)
I understand, sorry :( It seems I can't quite figure out why this happens.

15
So, it never maximizes vertically nor horizontally? Grr, there doesn't seem to be any reason for it to spontaneously decide to restore to the previous size :/

16
Hi ycomp,

Do you have any grid element configured with the "restore" element? Maybe when you click and are over the restore element, gridmove is assuming you want to move there? Did it ever happen to move to some element other than restore?

17
Hi kippg,

I'm still here, just haven't changed anything in GridMove as it seems to be stable for most people.
I have since moved to OSX and no longer own a Windows computer, so I don't use it everyday myself (unfortunately), which means I don't add any features anymore and mostly just do support and bugfixing if needed.

Thanks for the suggestions.  I ended up getting it to work with win7 compatibility.
Hi,
Indeed from Windows 7 onwards, Windows as a tighter grip on what each application is allowed to see from other running applications. This means that GridMove cannot move other windows or recognise the mouse when it's over windows from other applications. Typically, the solution seems to be to run it in administrator mode, but it's good to know that on win7 compatibility it also works :)

That is strange, it definitely isn't supposed to happen. Can you open GridMove.ini with notepad and tell me what value you have for "TitleSize"?

Hi,

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I think you refer to top-left corner of the window and not the top-right corner. That is, you're referring to the one that has the icon of the application and no the one with the close button. Is this right?
Actually, GridMove was designed to ignore that portion of the icon, but maybe it's miscalibrated?

Hi,
I have edited your original post to attach the file to the post instead of using an external host which may die at any moment.

General Software Discussion / Re: memory use and reason

I'm not sure about the Windows version, but the Mac version does this constantly. I have to routinely kill it, to keep it from taking over the computer (which isn't hard, given that it's a Mac, i.e. a severely underpowered PC :P ).

24
Ah, I see your problem. Adding to an existing grid won't work, because the elements overlap completely and the elements with smaller indexes will always have priority.
You need to use triggers for your grids. When you omit the "Grid" part of the configuration, it creates a grid and a trigger which are exactly the same. However, it doesn't need to be like this. Here's a simple example:

[Groups]

  NumberOfGroups = 2

[1]
  TriggerTop    = [Monitor1Top]
  TriggerRight  = [Monitor1Left] + [Monitor1Width]  /2
  TriggerBottom = [Monitor1Top]  + [Monitor1Height] /4
  TriggerLeft   = [Monitor1Left]

  GridTop    = [Monitor1Top]
  GridRight  = [Monitor1Left] + [Monitor1Width]  /2
  GridBottom = [Monitor1Top]  + [Monitor1Height] /2
  GridLeft   = [Monitor1Left]

[2]
  TriggerTop    = [Monitor1Top] + [Monitor1Height] /4
  TriggerRight  = [Monitor1Left] + [Monitor1Width]  /2
  TriggerBottom = [Monitor1Top]  + [Monitor1Height] /2
  TriggerLeft   = [Monitor1Left]

  GridTop    = [Monitor1Top]
  GridRight  = [Monitor1Left] + [Monitor1Width]  /2
  GridBottom = [Monitor1Top]  + [Monitor1Height]
  GridLeft   = [Monitor1Left]

i have a small question if i would like to make 3 separate 1920x1080 windows (since its 3 monitors as 1 = 5980x1080) would i divide this in 1/3? to be able to place the windows in such a way?
That's simple :) Something like this?

[Groups]
  NumberOfGroups = 12

[1]
  TriggerTop    = [Monitor1Top]
  TriggerRight  = [Monitor1Left] + [Monitor1Width]  /3*1
  TriggerBottom = [Monitor1Top]  + [Monitor1Height]
  TriggerLeft   = [Monitor1Left] + [Monitor1Width]  /3*0

[2]
  TriggerTop    = [Monitor1Top]
  TriggerRight  = [Monitor1Left] + [Monitor1Width]  /3*2
  TriggerBottom = [Monitor1Top]  + [Monitor1Height]
  TriggerLeft   = [Monitor1Left] + [Monitor1Width]  /3*1

[3]
  TriggerTop    = [Monitor1Top]
  TriggerRight  = [Monitor1Left] + [Monitor1Width]  /3*3
  TriggerBottom = [Monitor1Top]  + [Monitor1Height]
  TriggerLeft   = [Monitor1Left] + [Monitor1Width]  /3*2
