PS: thanks for the syntax coloring file! (even though I'm more of a Vim fan myself ;) )

I like this app a lot but for some reason my x64 Win7 won't let me use the F12 key to set a window to be ignored.  I haven't remapped that key or anything.  I was using F11 in another program with it set to be used globally (seek ahead 10 secs on my media player), tried disabling that but Gridmove still won't let me use the F12 - I press it and nothing happens.  Hitting F11 does sucessfully cancel the operation.  Any thoughts?  This is about the only bug of any matter for me, too.  I've tried Window Manager too, man is that thing overkill.

Hi KLR71,

I'm not sure why that would happen... Can someone with win7 x64 chime in to tell us if they can reproduce this issue?

Hi KLR71,

only to say I cannot reproduce the issue here in Win 7 x64 -
i.e. F12 works as it should, adding window to exceptions:

---------------------------
GridMove.exe
---------------------------
added MozillaWindowClass to exceptions
---------------------------
OK  
---------------------------

KLR71, apparently according to this, there's a "Windows Hotkey Explorer" which may help you find if there's another program using F12.

@tomos: thanks a lot for your help!

Hey jgpaiva, I've been using Gridmove for years and love it. I just upgraded to Windows 10 and unfortunately, when I use Gridmove, it snaps the windows into different quadrants/sections of the screen as before but now it leaves a large gap between them (like a couple mm).
I was wondering if there was a way to fix this in the settings (so the windows touch each other instead of leaving the gap) or if you would consider creating a Windows 10 optimized version of Gridmove in the future?
Thanks!

Hi AxCrusik,

I still haven't upgraded my home computer to windows 10, so I'm sorry I cannot reproduce that problem. Still, wouldn't it be a solution to build grids that slightly overlap as a workaround for that problem?

Hi jgpaiva, I just wanted to confirm that I was able to reproduce the issue AxCrusik mention in his post.

Below is a screenshot to illustrate, note the black border between windows:

Windows 10 seems to have a transparant border around all windows, recognizable when hovering the mouse across a border: the size-cursor shows when the mouse is already outside the window! I assume/suspect that this translates into a black border when inside a grid.
Have you tried to add the negative offset/overlap in grid coordinates, as suggested earlier?

Hello. I started using Eizo Screenslicer a few months ago to create virtual screen partitions on my 4k tv/monitor, but found that it was pretty limited for custom grids and didn't work with admin windows. I did some more searching and found grid move and am pretty impressed. The only problem I have is the method of moving screens to a grid. Setting it to "Use Drag Window To Edge method" is workable except, with a 4k screen, it's a long distance to the edge from some locations of the screen, and then you have to wait for it to recognize that you're at the edge. The "Use Draw With Middle Button method" doesn't work for me because I have several programs which use the middle click for 3d rotation (Google Earth, Vizio, and others).
I would like to suggest that there be a "Shift-Click" option, like Eizo uses, where you hold the shift button on the keyboard and then drag the window to the desired grid.
Thanks for the consideration and good job on the software. :)

I've just registered in this forum to thank you all for this awesome software (GridMove), specially to jgpaiva, I did a donation this mourning.

I'm on windows 10, and I solved the space between windows just overlapping the grids.

Thanks again for your work

I made the donation via the donate button in the GridMove program, using paypal, I found this forum a couple of hours later...
