Are you keyboard junkie like myself? Have a ton of finder windows open or trying to copy and paste from one document to another... or some other unorthodox reason for needing window management?  Yeah... me too. I've used several of the window management apps, they are all very cool and have a really cool feature set about them, but still can't justify the price?  Yeah... me too.

 

I've converted this Alfred extension from http://projects.jga.me/layouts/#toc3 to a workflow that uses both Hotkeys and Keyword trigger to help manage the top most window on your screen. Take a look at a look at Greg Allen's write up to learn how to use it. I only added a couple of hotkeys but feel free to edit to match your needs. 

 

 

I've finally updated Layouts to work with Alfred's Workflows: http://projects.jga.me/layouts/

 

 

If you already own a window manager like SizeUp take a look at Carlos-Sz - SizeUp workflow

Unfortunately, it still suffers from the same flaw that made me stop using it. The other developer clearly abandoned it, but maybe you’ll want to take on the task of fixing it. basically it does not work properly when the dock is in any position but the bottom.

 

Personally, I use another app for window management, but if you want to take on this bug, you basically would just need to refactor the calculations depending on the dock’s position. I give some details on how you can get the position, on the original repo (https://github.com/jgallen23/layouts/issues/4).

Interesting... Oddly enough I've never personally had any issues. I use multiple monitors and my dock sits on the left side, but hidden. All the keyboard triggers work as you'd expect.

That's probably why you haven’t noticed (because it’s hidden). If you notice (at least with the original script), if the dock is at the bottom and visible, resizes take that into account, but when it’s at the sides, windows go behind it, which gets very annoying, very fast.

thanks for this, i tried it out and have some issues when i disconnect my external monitor. it seems that it still uses the dimensions of my external monitor even when i disconnect it and am only using my laptop screen. i tried the reset command but it did not help. any ideas?

When you have the external hooked up is that the primary screen? I found that if you have the external screen set as the primary monitor I get the same result. 

 

I'll be working through the AS over time hopefully fixing bugs.

It indeed is the primary screen. thanks for taking the time to look through it.

Hello there,

 

Thanks for trying to fix this workflow :)

 

I am using it with a dual monitor setup and if I try to arrange the window it extends it to fill both monitors.

 

Is there any way to fix that?

 

best,

 

Dionysis

Just use the about link to get the updated one.

Hammerspoon supports multiple monitors and I have a workflow that makes use of Hammerspoon (I can resize the current window with vim like keyboard shortcuts. Very handy). You can get the workflow here: http://www.alfredforum.com/topic/5334-hammerspoon-workflow/

 

I do not have any predefined items for multiple monitors because I do not have multiple monitors. But, if anyone that has that type of setup would like to expand this workflow, please do and send me the changes to keep them updated on Packal!

 

My multiple monitor setup is really three computers I use together. :smile:
