xfwm should allow to select screen borders that will use tiling


Description Armin Jarmusch 2012-05-06 12:57:16 CEST
Hi there!

I think XFWM4 should have an option that allows the user to actually specify screen borders that, when moving a window against that, will tile the window over half the screen.

Probably a lot of users will only want to use tiling for displaying 2 pages side-by-side, who never will use this on the upper/lower borders of the screen, so this would be nice.

I think it would even be sufficient to have kind of hidden settings for this in the Settings Editor.

Best greetings, sincerely,
