They probably where .grid files, but the board doesn't support those as attachments, so they should be packed in a zip file.

Thanks for the hint. I edited my earlier post, accordingly.

8-Part Grid
« Reply #127 on: April 15, 2020, 05:35 PM »
GridMove has helped me out a lot with productivity, and I thought I would post the grid setup I use for my 4k monitor, with a side monitor.

It divides one monitor into eight equal parts (960x1080 resolution) and leaves the [9] hotkey for a full screen window on the second monitor.

It's designed for use with hotkeys mostly.

Use the noborder version for new versions of Windows 10, and the other ones for Windows 7 and 8. The alt version switches primary and secondary monitors.

Monitor 1:
|-----------------------|
|  1  |  2  |  3  |  4  |
|-----------------------|
|  5  |  6  |  7  |  8  |
|_______________________|

Monitor 2:
|-----|
|  9  |
|-----|

I'm currently on a single 3440x1440 monitor and I'm having some difficulties creating a grid that I am satisfied with.

This is the grid layout that I want. 3x2Grid.pngGridMove: Grids Here

This is the grid file that I'm using.

The problem that I'm having is purely cosmetic. When I open Microsoft Office programs and align them with my grid, everything is perfect and sit flush together. MicrosoftOffice.pngGridMove: Grids Here

When I use other programs like File Explorer or Chrome and try to align them, there are these offsets around the edges that annoy me. MicrosoftOfficeButSpacedOut.pngGridMove: Grids Here

I want it to cover my desktop completely. Would anybody be able to help me rectify this issue? I tried using Fancy Zones and it doesn't have this cosmetic defect but it also restricts the hotkeys to some combination of Shift, Ctrl, Alt or Win while I find GridMove's ability to use the middle mouse button much more intuitive.

Thanks to JGPavia for making GridMove! I've been using this for years and finally decided to make my own grid. I use a 21:9 1440p display and mostly use GM to setup my monitor in thirds, I find quarters too narrow. I made this grid to do 1/3, 1/2, or 2/3 as full height, top, or bottom. It comes out to 21 locations and is sort of like a simplified xipergrid1. Hope its useful for someone :)

A combination of this
|-------------|-------------|
|                 |                 |
|-------------|-------------|
|                 |                 |
|-------------|-------------|

or this
|--------|--------|--------|
|          |           |          |
|--------|--------|--------|
|          |           |          |
|--------|--------|--------|

Example combo:
|-----------------|--------|
|                      |          |
|                      |--------|
|                      |          |

I just got a pair of ultrawide monitors and LG's software didn't really cut it for me, so I went searching the internet and found this amazing software that enabled me to to things just my way.
I use the main monitor in landscape while the second in portrait, so I set it up like this for the main monitor
/---------------------\      /---------------------\
|      |      |       |      |          |          |
|  1   |   2  |   3   |  OR  |    7     |     8    |
|      |      |       |      |          |          |
\---------------------/      \---------------------/

And for the portrait monitor:
/---------\
|    4    |
|         |
|---------|
|    5    |
|         |
|---------|
|    6    |
|         |
\---------/

A couple of notes:
  • I did this mainly by observing the examples and the built in help, so I think there is room for improvement (just now found out Tyinsar's awesome tutorial)
  • There are gaps between each region, which I don't know how to fix yet
  • I didn't really pay much attention to triggers because I pretty much use keyboard shortcuts
  • For some reason, Notepad++ won't accept the keyboard shortcuts

Hope my custom grid can be helpful to someone!
