try the tall layout, and increase the main pane count by 1
omg I love you
What exactly does main pane count do
Btw. Insane work on this app
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
That's awesome. Thank you so much
@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.
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?
Howdy! I sit possible to have gaps in Amethyst?
Yes, under settings there are both "window margins" and "screen padding". or do you mean just empty positions in the layout itself?
Are there any rules on picking up tickets on the twillo board?
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?
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
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
this used to happen less often, but now it happens almost every time
i've reproduce the problem in another window manager
That's a fair bit of strain on graphics. Maybe it's delaying the accessibility calls enough that they encounter errors. I've seen that happen on occasion.
But it's been fairly rare.
I rarely have that many monitors.
that appears to be the problem in the other application as well
he would timeout after 100 milliseconds, which wasn't enough
It's an interesting problem.
Not sure how to approach it.
If Amethyst puts up its own window, we could probably measure that delay (at least for resizing) right?
I don't think so. I would expect the effect to be wildly varied.
It's also possible that the total number of windows impacts it. If you have 20 windows visible and they all receive accessibility calls at the same time would some of them be more likely to time out than if you had 10 windows?
one thing talon is doing is checking on where the window is after a timeout and retrying if it isn't where it should be
still not perfect though
We do something similar for registering observers on applications, but we do an exponential backoff.
It’s a lot of delay for an already slow operation, though.
Could you link me to the code you’re talking about?
it sounds like part of the problem is that i use dragon naturallyspeaking
it forces window resize animations
Hi guys, quick question about the Amethyst tiling wm. Is it possible to use amethyst to send windows from one display to another? Is this handled via the "spaces" concept or is there a separate concept within Amethyst for displays?
