However, I suggest disabling the “automatic rearrange Spaces” behavior (just causes confusion): https://apple.stackexchange.com/questions/214348/how-to-prevent-mac-from-changing-the-order-of-desktops-spaces
Window highlight: There’s different (free and open source) app for that - https://github.com/puffnfresh/Honer.app .

Hi, first off: THAAAAAAAAAANK you very, very, very, very much for Amethyst !!!! Coming from swaywm I needed it badly :)))) It's a pity that neither Microsoft, nor Apple exploit the power of Tiling...

Now I have 2 wishes / problems / questions:
(a) If you provide a pattern to force floating, and then use the keyboard shortcut to toggle floating on these matched windows, the keyboard shortcut seems to be IGNORED. Is that right? And why? This should work IMHO.

(b) I am wondering why there is no possibility to assign a keyboard shortcut to toggle "enable/disable" Amethyst with a keyboard shortcut ?
My usecase: I am using Amethyst together with BetterTouchTool (BTT) and BTT has this nice feature allowing to place windows into upper left quadrant or right half of screen... very nice! In this case sometimes it's the easiest to pause Amethyst for a while to keep the BTT setup layout, hence my desire to assign the shortcut to the function "Disable/Enable" that is already available in the bar-menu of Amethyst.

And last: Is there a way to financially support Amethyst? I would like to chip in 20 bucks. Never mind, I just scrolled to the end and found the paragraph about contributions :)

@proxa
@bitwiseman Awesome, thank you! Honer is great! I'll have to give the kill combo a shot.

I'm trying to get some windows floated in Android Studio (com.google.android.studio). I specify them like 'Rebase branch' and 'Commit Changes', but the windows still get tiled. Should the restriction be a regexp?
Ota Mares
@omares
hey there, i have issues floating small subwindows. and it would be awesome if someone could help me out on how to achieve floating for these two:
  1. touch id popup (when macos ask for authentication)
  2. download selection popup of firefox (when downloading a file and specifying the target folder)
Stephen
@notstephen
Is there any way to have Amethyst output a list of the windows it believes are on a screen? I'm having issues with amethyst not using the whole screen and am assuming that it's trying to tile things which aren't visible

Is there a way to make a layout that is like collumn. but where the main window is on the right.
3collumn right is not quite what im looking for

@ianfixes

Is there a way to make a layout that is like collumn. but where the main window is on the right.

This should be a straightforward copy of an existing layout. The feature creep here is whether layouts should support rotation, mirroring, etc

Stephen
@notstephen
Still trying to troubleshoot these invisible windows. 75% of my screen is desktop, amethyst clearly thinks there are other windows on-screen.
mrkskk
@mrkskk
@ianfixes can i do this in the UI? i do not see the ability to create layouts
is it through terminal?

@da-edra
Hello! Is there a way to change Amethyst keybidings? I come from Linux and I'm very used to the keybindings i3wm uses and I'd love to use them on Amethyst. :smiley:
Liam Newman
@bitwiseman
@da-edra Sure. Right-click on the icon -> preferences -> shortcuts tab.

hello! amethyst is not in mac ports isn't it?

@conancarrow
Hi! I'm having trouble getting Amethyst to recognize zathura windows. If I open a pdf with zathura book.pdf & the window that's opened just doesn't tile. Does anyone know a workaround?

Thanks a lot Liam!

@vvnlee
Hello, I was wondering if amethyst collects any information from the user and handles any information?
Liam Newman
@bitwiseman
@vvnlee Could you be a bit more specific?
vvnlee
@vvnlee
Sorry, I'm part of my company's compliance team and I have a user who wants to user Amethyst. I was wondering if Amethyst collects any information from the user who downloads; or if it handles any data from the user. I downloaded the app and I didn't notice any EULA
I'm mostly concerned about data and privacy
Liam Newman
@bitwiseman
So, the code is open of course: https://github.com/ianyh/Amethyst
I don’t see any setting for collecting usage data.
vvnlee
@vvnlee
I'm sorry, I don't mean a setting within Amethyst, but I mean does the application collect any data from the user and send it back to the devs at Amethyst for example ?
Such as, is there a privacy policy ?
Ian
@ianfixes

@mrkskk

can i [copy an existing layout] in the UI?

No, sorry... I meant in the codebase it might be straightforward -- it's not something you can accomplish from the UI

I'm not the project author, but in all my contributions to this project (and Silica, which it's built on) I never ran across anything that looked like it sent data back to the author. If you need a privacy policy document to exist in the app/repo, it might be best to open an issue to track that.

@avatar-lavventura
I was wondering is there any way to use Amethyst only for a single program like (Mail) or only on a single Deskton N?
vvnlee
@vvnlee
@ianfixes Thank you so much!
Ian Ynda-Hummel
@ianyh
Oh man, I missed a lot.
@vvnlee Amethyst does not capture user data.
There isn't an explicit privacy policy, but I can add one.
@avatar-lavventura you can do the first thing by using a tiling whitelist. In the Floating preferences pane set it to float applications except listed and then set whatever applications you want to use with Amethyst.
Ian Ynda-Hummel
@ianyh
The second thing can kind of be supported.
You can use the floating layout on everything but desktop N.
@conancarrow zathura on mac seems to use xquartz ianyh/Amethyst#196
It's not supported.
@nextl00p I have not put it on macports.
Ian Ynda-Hummel
@ianyh
To be fair, though, I also don't maintain the homebrew formula.
Someone might have done it.
Gonçalo
@GoncaloGarcia
Hi! Is there a way I can resize vertically?
Lets say I have one window on half of the screen horizontally and two stacked windows on the other side
I'd like to make the top window smaller and the bottom window larger
Ian Ynda-Hummel
@ianyh
Not currently supported.
Ian
@ianfixes
Gonçalo, support for this really depends on 2 features that don't exist yet (only one of which is even being tracked).
  1. An ability to see what layout parameters are in effect, #970 (as it's confused plenty of people already, myself included, despite the layouts having only 2 adjustable parameters)
  2. An ability to track more than just the "main pane" proportion when scaling windows. I'm not sure of an appropriate data structure to do this, although I know AwesomeWM has this feature and might be a good place to look for guidance.

@ianyh great work on Amethyst, extremely helpful for me. Appreciate the effort you put into it.
Made a contribution to girls who code in your name. :thumbsup:
