A useful tool complementing GridMove is MaxMax by KM Tools, which lets the user leave a margin at any edge of each monitor when maximizing windows. This allows GridMove-tiled windows beneath to be accessed by moving the mouse pointer to the edge of the screen and clicking.

This paradigm suits the idea of windows which don't completely reach the edge of the screen, as in this glee60 grid quite well.

To work around the bug which sometimes limits the minimum margin on multiple monitors with different resolutions (and set values more quickly than clicking the up/down spinner arrows multiple times), use regedit to edit the keys directly at

Caveat emptor  ;)

JGPaiva's GridMove and Ahk Tools / Re: GridMove: Grids Here
« on: January 14, 2010, 07:15 AM »
Thank you, jgpaiva, for a fantastic application -- I can't live without it now  ;)  Keep up the good work!

In case anyone is interested, I made this grid with these features:

1. All combinations of 2 columns x 2 rows and 3 columns x 2 rows.

2. 2-monitor support (add 30 to trigger codes for 2nd monitor).

3. Trigger codes corresponding to numeric keypad key positions.

4. Most popular standard sizes according to http://store.steampowered.com/hwsurvey/ (1024x768 [trigger 40], 1280x1024 [50], 1440x900 [10] and 1680x1050 [20]) for Web development.

5a. 2-column windows vertically inset by 1 pixel so that 3-column windows can be focused by moving the mouse pointer to the left/right screen edge and clicking.
5b. 3-column windows horizontally inset by 1 pixel so that 2-column windows can be focused by moving the mouse pointer to the top/bottom screen edge and clicking.

I find feature #5 really useful as I can use muscle memory and needn't depend on the taskbar (and Alt+Tab) to select windows.

P.S. Is that a way to label the trigger areas with descriptions when the grid is shown, similar to "On Top" and "Undo"?
