New Feature "Snap Window to objects"

Postby geizer » 24 Jan 2009

Please consider adding "Snap Window to objects" feature.

When "Snap Window to objects" is enabled, workspace windows would snap to each other and main window borders.

"Snap to objects" button could be placed on the Title Bar next to "Stick Window" and "Detach" Window. Default behavior for all windows would be selected in the "Window" menu on the Toolbar.
Or even make it more simple: Snap feature would be global for all Multicharts windows.

Benefits:
1. Chart and Scanner Windows could be arranged in less time when setting a new workspace, or resizing/rearranging windows within existing workspace.
2. Would help better utilize the available screen real estate.

Thank you.

Hi geizer,

Are you talking about chart windows' behavior when they 'stick' to each other in such a way that when you expand one by dragging on one of its sides, the other window becames smaller so you don't have to adjust sizes for each window separately?

Marina,

I thought of having them just being able to stick to each other and/or to invisible grid,
but the way you see it
...
the other window becames smaller so you don't have to adjust sizes for each window separately

gives even greated control.

Hi geizer,

The implementation that I mentioned has been planned for one of the future releases.
