GridMove simple grid maker
« on: July 14, 2008, 10:03:51 AM »
Ok, so I just had this idea:
For all of you who use GridMove out there, how would you like an application that allowed you to position a few windows on your screen, then press a button, and that application would create a new GridMove Grid for you to use (and share!)?
Would anyone use this? Do you think it'd be better than making the grid by editing the files?

As a non programmer I would find this sort of tool very helpful. At the risk of exposing my ignorance, I have yet to be able to correctly create a usable grid by editing the files. By the way, I think that GridMove is an excellent program.

Something I've learned at university: "When the users can't use your software, it's not their fault for not understanding how to use it. It's your fault for making it too complicated" ;). That's exactly why I'm trying to make it less complicated.
Let's see how many people would prefer this method ;)

yes please João :)
I've been happy with a couple of grids I usually use, but I would definitely use this :up:

This sounds PERFECT!!  B/c I think there's many of us - like ME - that work on computers a lot but don't understand the programming end of it at all!!

I thought I wanted to make my own grid, but after looking at the coding and trying to read thru the instructions, about halfway into it I was completely lost and getting a headache!!   :'(

So this would be a dream come true for me ... since I just got GridMove and already it's my favorite tool, it'd be really cool to be able to make my own grids that quickly and easily!!

YES PLEASE!!!!    :-*

Um ... is it finished yet??  :tease:

But seriously, I noticed that this thread is over a month old and there's not that many replies  :'( - so I hope that doesn't discourage you from creating this totally awesome helper tool.  I'm sure there are LOTS of people that would use it ... but just don't want to admit that they need it!!   :-[

I'm going to subscribe to this thread and hope that you are currently working on this wondrous tool and that I will soon get a reply notice that will be you posting this tool!!  B/c this idea is so hot that it's  :onfire: !!

I'll be waiting eagerly for that reply notice!!  :eusa_dance:

Thanks so much for even thinking up this great idea!!  Shirley

jgpaiva and mouser - thanks so much for your quick responses!! 

jgpaiva - I know how it goes ... I'm just glad it's still on your To Do list!

mouser - thanks so much, but there's NO way I can figure all that out!!  :P

This is why I am so looking forward to jgpaiva's wonderful app!

I'll just wait patiently ... knowing that it WILL arrive someday!  LOL!!

Thanks so much,  Shirley   :-*

hey, I've just thought of this now.. so how about.. since I'm pretty lazy right now to make any custom grids, how about making a "GridBuilder" that can easily make some grids.. :D ? Where you could select regions in a window (representing the desktop), as well as set regions..


The clock is running. Make the most of today. Time waits for no man. Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That's why it is called the present.
