Feature Request: Option to automatically center on screen
« on: March 13, 2012, 04:59:16 AM »
I know there's an old plugin for multi-monitor setups that says it includes the option to center on the screen; but frankly, I don't need the additional functionality -- I'd just like for FARR to pop back back up in the middle every time it's launched, instead of maybe being all the way up at the top (like if I had previously listed a large directory's contents).  I switched over from Launchy, and I'm really missing that setting.  I hope something like that wouldn't be too hard to implement?

By the way, thanks for writing FARR. :D  It's an awesome program, and makes life in an alternate Windows shell much more enjoyable.  :)

I agree, it seems like a good idea and easy to add -- i will add an option for it.  It could be especially useful for multimonitor users, to have it appear centered on "current" monitor.

The multi-monitor functionality can be disabled in the plugin if you only want the centering (although with one monitor it doesn't make a difference).

... It could be especially useful for multimonitor users, to have it appear centered on "current" monitor.
That would make the multi-monitor plugin mostly obsolete, which would not be a bad thing ;)

I only have one screen, but at least in that situation it appears to work in the latest:

[Feature] New option to position FARR window centered on current monitor when triggered.
