I'm just reporting that Brandon told me GridMove works perfectly under Windows Vista. I'd like to get a few more opinions on this, to make sure it's stable in Vista, since i can't test it myself.

I have always used GridMove on Windows Vista.  It almost always works fine.

I have only observed two strange behaviors, and unfortunately I haven't recorded the details so you will probably not find this report useful.  Nevertheless, here they are:

1)  Two or three times, I have noticed that there were multiple (sometimes even more than ten) instances of GridMove running.  It showed up multiple times in Task Manager, and it showed up multiple times in the notification area.  I think I remember that this was a time when I was experimenting with different screen configurations, so lots of resolution changes were involved.  GridMove continued to work fine.  When I noticed, I just right-clicked on each of the GridMove icons in the notification area and closed them until there was only one left.

2)  About half of the time, when I restart Vista, after logging in, I see a dialog that says that a previous instance of GridMove could not be terminated.  It asks if I want to wait.  If I answer yes, everything works fine.

I have two 24" widescreen monitors.  I like to work with large full-height windows directly in front of my eyes, with smaller windows off to the sides.  This calls for a symmetrical grid, where the right and left monitor grids are mirrors of each other.

I never split my main windows horizontally, only vertically.  But my side windows (maybe call them "portlets") might be half height.

I sometimes split my screens 50/50 left-to-right, and other times 65/35.

With all of those constraints, I came up with a grid layout that provides what I want with 16 zones.  I haven't decided if I want to add zones for minimize and maximize.  The current implementation doesn't have them.

The grid works a lot like the dual-screen grid that is currently included with the base installation, except that it mirror-images the left and right monitors, and allows for a 50/50 split in addition to the 35/65 split.  (Maybe the dual-screen layout is a 30/70 split.  I can't tell exactly.)

The attached grid allows for layouts like

50/50 split full height

|--------|--------|  |--------|--------|
|        |        |  |        |        |
|        |        |  |        |        |
|        |        |  |        |        |
|--------|--------|  |--------|--------|

65/35 split full height

|-----|-----------|  |-----------|-----|
|     |           |  |           |     |
|     |           |  |           |     |
|     |           |  |           |     |
|-----|-----------|  |-----------|-----|

50/50 split with portlets

|--------|--------|  |--------|--------|
|        |        |  |        |        |
|--------|        |  |        |--------|
|        |        |  |        |        |
|--------|--------|  |--------|--------|

65/35 split with portlets

|-----|-----------|  |-----------|-----|
|     |           |  |           |     |
|-----|           |  |           |-----|
|     |           |  |           |     |
|-----|-----------|  |-----------|-----|

Or any combination of those.  Of course, there's nothing keeping you from using 50/50 on one monitor and 65/35 on the other, or full height portlets on one and half-height portlets on the other.

Hello everyone:

I am a newcomer to GridMove, and I have to say that I am ecstatic that I found it!  It is a perfect, simple, elegant solution to a growing problem.  I have two 24" widescreen monitors, with very specific ideas about how I would like my windows to be arranged, and GridMove solves the problem perfectly.

I will be working on my own Grid, but for now I have a few questions about the existing ones:

When I look at the items available in the Templates menu of the system tray applet, I see twelve templates, several of which appear to be duplicates.

When I look in the Grids directory of the installation directory, I only see six templates.  How do these relate?

Unfortunately, the template that I would really love to start with is the Dual-screen grid, but that's one of them that doesn't appear in the Grids directory.

Assuming that I can obtain the .grid file for the Dual-screen grid, that would lead to my next question:  Is there an automatic way to have the Monitor X grid be a mirror image of Monitor Y's grid?  I like the dual-screen grid pretty well, but I would prefer to have the smaller windows on the outside edges of each screen.  If there is no automatic mirroring support, it's no big deal -- I assume I can just hand-create a two-monitor setup that accomplishes the mirroring.

Thanks again for a great implementation of a great idea.
