Stack & Tile (SAT)

To use SAT it has to be enabled in the terminal by:

setdecor SATDecorator

How to use it

You need a keyboard with a Windows key (Mac keyboards use the right 'alt/option' key), press the key and drag a window at the same time.

Nothing happens here, so just wondering if a key has to be pressed when dragging a window towards another in order to let the two stack (or tile). Next question: which key? I've tried Windows-key, Ctrl, Alt, Home, End, Spacebar, Shift and so on, but none work. Using r38882

Hi Meanwhile,

'You need a keyboard with a Windows key, press the win key and drag a window at the same time.'

From: Mailing List

Also see, 'install'. Not sure if it's on the default image. Please confirm.

Guess I should add the above to the Wiki ;-)

Aye, that's a useful link. Thank you, Karl.

Still, I need to fiddle around (try other keyboards, keymaps etc.) because it doesn't work here, but I'm sure it will work with everybody else :D

no prob MW. maybe it isn't included in the image yet, i'm not sure.

I did get it to work… I'm on rev38892 GCC4 hybrid.

I have a MacPro Keyboard and had to hold the right 'alt/option' key while dragging a tracker window (by the yellow tab) beside another one… it worked then and snapped together.

On r38882 GCC2hybrid it doesn't work in a multitude of key/keymap/keyboard combinations, hopefully a later revision will solve that. SATDecorator really is included in that revision: I can find it at /boot/home/config/add-ons/decorators. Also, there was no error message in Terminal after using 'setdecor SATDecorator'.
