Thanks. I like this explorer placement thing just because there are so many utilities that open explorer windows willy-nilly. Now I don't care. Just hit control-shift-e and they are in some sort of pattern. I learned some stuff about AHK_L that surprised me. For one thing local variables created inside a function don't just "disappear" when you leave the function like in most compiled languages.  They are still lurking around. But if you call the function again they are overwritten with new values instead of spawning more. Little tidbits are interesting. I'm used to compiled languages where the stuff is stored on the stack. Return from function and it's all gone. smiley

MoveIt 1.1.8.7 Changed Middle Mouse Button hotkey so that it only fires when held on Caption Bar. This should reduce conflict with windows using it for scrolling.. such as browsers.

MoveIt 1.1.9.1 Added Control Shift Arrow hotkeys.  Works the same as Alt Arrow(which is still there) but moves the window by a smaller increment.

Changed Snap Explorer to Quadrant to Snap Window to Quadrant. Now the Mouse Cursor Position is used to determine the quadrant rather than the window origin.  Any movable window may be snapped. If the window is not resizeable it is just moved. Otherwise it is also sized to fit in the quadrant.

See About Box and Readme.txt for more details.

MoveIt 1.1.9.2 When snapping a window to quadrant, MoveIt now uses Hit Test to make sure the mouse cursor is on the caption bar. This is to avoid possible conflicts with Alt Click. When dragging the window the mouse should be in the right place anyway. Just a precaution since it doesn't seem to have any effect on responsiveness.

This is very nice to have more control - but it clashes with Ctrl+Shift+Arrow which selects a word of text (in direction of the arrow). It's one that's very commonly used AFAIK.

Unfortunately I've also run into a problem with Alt+Arrow clashing with a software I'm using a lot at the moment - I had a false alarm with that before, but this one is real. I'll look at modifing the keys once I figure out a decent alternative shortcut - they mostly taken by one app or another Sad
Considering Ctrl+Alt+Arrow but need to research a bit first.


Changed Snap Explorer to Quadrant to Snap Window to Quadrant. Now the Mouse Cursor Position is used to determine the quadrant rather than the window origin.  Any movable window may be snapped. If the window is not resizeable it is just moved. Otherwise it is also sized to fit in the quadrant.

this sounds interesting, haven't used it yet this way, must check it out.

The hotkeys are good points. I'm thinking of changing Alt Arrow to Win-Alt-Arrow and Control-Shift Arrow to Control=Win Arrow.

MoveIt 1.1.9.3 Changed Arrow hotkeys to Alt-Winkey Arrow for move by large increment, and Control-Winkey  Arrow to move by smaller increment. This should remove conflict with commonly used hotkeys.

MoveIt 1.2.0.0 Added keys 1 - 9 (top main keyboard row only, not numberpad) to position windows without resizing in tic tac toe style. 1 = bottom left corner of work area. 9 = top right.

This should eliminate the need to use TicClick if you have MoveIt running.

See About Box for details.

I bumped up the version to 1.2.0.0 since it embeds the functionality of another utility.

I dont know would this be called a bug or not...

I press my default hotkey, then decide not to use the app and press the escape key:

---------------------------
Error:  The following variable name contains an illegal character:
"Custom_"

   Line#
--->   158: if (InStr(Custom_%key%,"|")) 

The current thread will exit.

Thanks. I'll set it to use Esc to bail out of the input on next release.

MoveIt 1.2.5.0 Added code to screen out unusable keys in the case of "hotkey,then press a key" actions. If the key is not in 1 - 9 and is not in list of letters for sections, (such as t,b,l,r,s,c,h,v,u,z) a "ding" is played (unless the key in the Esc key. In which case the function returns silently, as that's the valid key to cancel an operation.)

It may seem like a lot of particulars.. but it's kind of like the vi editor. If you use it fairly regularly, before you know it your fingers remember what to do. smiley
