@doriancransac It should be. Under the "preferences" there a shortcuts tab.
you can change all the shortcuts there.

Hello! Is there a way to hide windows from the tiling? eg use amethyst to manage 3 or 4 visible windows and use some other method of switching which windows are visible (alt-tabbing etc) Or is there another way of making tiles more mangeable when you have lots of programs open?
Dorian Cransac
@doriancransac
Ah thanks, didn't think to check there, just did a quick google search and somehow couldn't find the info. Thanks & sorry about that.

@ianyh
@TimWSpence I don't know of any macOS mechanism that would let you do that, unfortunately.

Hey, so I just install amethyst on my Mac high Sierra and I am having trouble with it. I can't set any of my Security & Privacy items and none of Mac keyboard shortcuts (like command+tab) don't work anymore, anyone can help me?
Ítalo Drago
@DCitalo
Just a update: I relaunch my Mac and everything works, idkw that happens

Hi, quick question. In the application I write in (Ableton Live), there are always several floating windows open. ("Floating" in the OSX sense: ^F6 toggles through them).

I use them so often that I need a way to tile them, so that they maximize screen space.

The issue is that they're always different sizes, so their dimensions would have to be detected in order to be properly tiled.

I've looked many places and no luck. Is this possible with Amethyst? Thanks!

@ryepesg
Hi, is there a way of enabling switching between the last two windows using the same shortcut? (like ALT-Tab on Windows) Thank you
Liam Newman
@bitwiseman
@ryepesg CMD+Tab seems to work for me.
ryepesg
@ryepesg
Thank you @bitwiseman, but it doesn't seems to be integrated with Amethyst itself because the pointer keeps on the old window (I am using "Mouse follows focused windows")
NathanRightnour
@NathanRightnour
Sorry if my question is irrelevant :/ just really hoping for a solution
Someone recommended Amethyst to me for this
Ian
@ianfixes
Hi Nathan, not being an Ableton user I can't say for sure. But Amethyst's ability to handle windows depends on whether the OS is handling them (vs the application itself, such as a floating tool window). Can you post a gif capture of your screen with the windows floating?
Liam Newman
@bitwiseman
@ryepesg Ah, yes, it is a system level. But it seems like that might be a bug. If someone cmd-tabs, I would expect the mouse to follow.
NathanRightnour
@NathanRightnour
Thanks for your help! Here's a GIF of the screen with the floating windows: https://nrcs.link/39pvl

@ianyh what do you think about using #127 to help with this? It might be cool to have a feature (even just for debugging) that draws a border around each window Amethyst "sees". They could be color-coded to indicate which windows are un-managed due to user settings (vs being framed). This would help e.g. to see whether a floating window was being affected by settings vs not being presented as a "window" by the OS.
Ian
@ianfixes
@NathanRightnour it looks like the windows in question are some form of "tool window" (note the shorter-than-usual title bar), so it's possible that the OS doesn't have control over them in the way that you'd expect. In some ways, that's a good thing: some types of tool windows simply disappear when their "parent" window loses focus, and that would make for some very jarring rearrangements of windows as you switch back and forth between apps. That doesn't mean we can't improve things (see my previous comment), but it might not be possible to directly address the problem you have.
NathanRightnour
@NathanRightnour
Okay, thanks for checking! If I can do any kind of testing I'm happy to help.

Hey! Is it possible to have a "Quarter" layout?
Ian
@ianfixes
what would that look like?
Agustin Suarez
@suarez-agu
4 evenly split windows
2 on top
2 at the bottom
Ian
@ianfixes
try the tall layout, and increase the main pane count by 1
Agustin Suarez
@suarez-agu
omg I love you
What exactly does main pane count do
Btw. Insane work on this app
Ian
@ianfixes
As you noticed, there are a variety of different layouts. Most (but not all) involve some concept of a "main" window. Floating layout and BSP don't really have main windows, for example.
But for the rest of the layouts, the windows are all scaled relative to one "main" pane. For the Tall layout, that pane is vertical and resizes horizontally. For Wide, it's horizontal and resizes vertically.
Minimum "main" pane count is one. But if you increase the count, you subdivide that space.
You can make some interesting spaces adjusting that single parameter
Agustin Suarez
@suarez-agu
That's awesome. Thank you so much
Ian Ynda-Hummel
@ianyh
@NathanRightnour it looks like those might be panels rather than windows. Amethyst is explicitly narrowed to windows. It's not impossible to handle panels, but it causes a lot of unexpected behaviors if you do tile them.
@ianfixes #127 could be interesting for debugging, but it's possible what you actually want is a separate debugging mode that layers debug information over all windows.
Ian
@ianfixes
For #127 I wasn't thinking so much of debugging as for helping folks see whether things are windows or panels. (Case in point, NathanRightnour's issue). Like, maybe the popup for "identify" would also point out which window is which. I dunno, should I open an issue to track that idea?
Arnold
@arnoldsandoval
Howdy! I sit possible to have gaps in Amethyst?
Ian
@ianfixes
Yes, under settings there are both "window margins" and "screen padding". or do you mean just empty positions in the layout itself?

@jeffwindsor
Just to properly communicate it, I put up some PRs for documentation updates around hotkeys.
ianyh/Amethyst#796
ianyh/ianyh.github.io#8
Are there any rules on picking up tickets on the twillo board?
Michael Drogalis
@MichaelDrogalis
Hey there. I just downloaded Amethyst for OS X 10.13.6. I enabled it through the Accessibility settings, but whenever I run the hot keys to change layouts, I see it echo the layout its switching to in the middle of my screen, but no windows are moved. Can anyone think of something dumb that I'm doing?
Michael Drogalis
@MichaelDrogalis
Huh, looks like I just had to restart it. Thanks for this cool project!

amethyst has recently stopped reliably working for me. It seems as if amethyst starts moving a window in the right direction and adjusting the dimensions of the window, but then gives up partway through, leaving the window in a weird state
this happens for all kinds of events, moving windows between screens, resizing for new windows, rearranging windows on the same screen, etc
any ideas?
i can usually get the window to settle in the right spot by switching focus back and forth between windows, each time amethyst moves the window a little closer to where it should be

@zach-nervana
this used to happen less often, but now it happens almost every time

@zach-nervana
i've reproduce the problem in another window manager
