JGPaiva's GridMove and Ahk Tools / GridMove Grid Making Tutorial
« on: December 28, 2007, 12:51 AM »
Creating Your Own Grids

I made this because I Really appreciate this program and want others to love it as much as I do. The problem with GridMove is that, while it's very powerful when properly set up, it's not easy for everyone to get the most out of it (Unless there is an already perfect grid for them or) they create their own grid for their specific setup.

Tip: You can find GridMove Grid files can be posted here: (Link) (you can even share yours)

I'm going to start this fairly simply with only a single monitor setup but the real power comes in with larger screens and multiple monitors.


1) Define Grid Areas:
2) Define Trigger Areas:
3) Creating Your First Grid File:
4) Multiple / Overlapping Grids:
5) Special Grid Commands:
6) Using Multiple Monitors: (I'm still planning)
7) Additional Notes: (I'm still planning)

I know this looks like a lot of information but most of it is examples and if you follow along, taking it step by step, it's quite easy. If all you want is a simple Grid then you might only even need parts 1-3.

This is not all complete & parts are preliminary - (but I think it's a useful start)

I'm also still learning the software just like you may be.
Much of what I've learned was from looking at other Grid files - If I stole an idea from you - Thanks!  :P ;D
(If you really, really, Really, want credit let me know ;))

If you have any feedback, would like better explanations, or spot an error, please let me know that too.

Parts 1-5 in beta now :D Feedback is welcome.

Note: If you appreciate this then send Donation Credits (if you are so inclined) to jgpaiva or to this site's general account. (Making this tutorial is my donation).
