High Sierra 10.13.6
4 monitors: 1x retina display, 2x 2560x1440 and 1x 4k display
this used to happen less often, but now it happens almost every time
Zach Dwiel
@zach-nervana
i've reproduce the problem in another window manager
Ian Ynda-Hummel
@ianyh
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.
Zach Dwiel
@zach-nervana
that appears to be the problem in the other application as well
he would timeout after 100 milliseconds, which wasn't enough
Ian Ynda-Hummel
@ianyh
It's an interesting problem.
Not sure how to approach it.
Ian
@ianfixes
If Amethyst puts up its own window, we could probably measure that delay (at least for resizing) right?
Ian Ynda-Hummel
@ianyh
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?
Zach Dwiel
@zach-nervana
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
Ian Ynda-Hummel
@ianyh
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?
Zach Dwiel
@zach-nervana
gotcha, that makes sense
unfortunately its free closed source https://talonvoice.com
its a general purpose framework for hands free interaction with mac
window management API is just one of the features
https://github.com/dwiel/talon_community/blob/master/misc/window_snap.py#L42 is one my scripts which also works around some of this slowness but at a high and inefficient level
Zach Dwiel
@zach-nervana
it sounds like part of the problem is that i use dragon naturallyspeaking
it forces window resize animations
:facepunch:

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?
Ian Ynda-Hummel
@ianyh
@AkshayBudhiraja the commands you are looking for are throwing windows to screens.
For example, throwing a window from your second display to your first display would be shift+ctrl+opt+w by default.
Akshay Budhiraja
@AkshayBudhiraja
Oh right, can't believe I missed that. Thanks @ianyh this works great.
Ian Ynda-Hummel
@ianyh
No worries. :)
And thanks!
Ian Ynda-Hummel
@ianyh
@ianfixes I implemented this for you. ianyh/Amethyst#785
It provides the UI and an adaptable mechanism for adding more info if needed.
Ian
@ianfixes
Thanks! I'll work on that

Hi guys. I would like to ask whether anybody has experience with using Intellij Idea with Amethyst?
For me it's not working. Amethyst cannot manage Intellij Idea at all.
Ian Ynda-Hummel
@ianyh
I know that java-based apps have had trouble in the past.
Ian Ynda-Hummel
@ianyh
Considering ways to make testing things easier. My current work involves making a generic window protocol.
Using the generics, though, requires everything that interacts with applications or windows use generics.
I can't decide if it will be too cumbersome, and it's a big change.
I will probably make the change and open a PR to see how much overhead it seems like it will have.
Ian
@ianfixes
I honestly still haven't looked at writing tests, but it would be cool to glimpse at more of the underlying architecture for it
Ian Ynda-Hummel
@ianyh
@ianfixes when you get a chance could you take a look at this PR? ianyh/Amethyst#813 I want to get a litmus test on how complex it is for contributors.

@MarioRicalde
Is there some documentation about the .amethyst file somewhere? I see it mentioned in Issues but I fail to see any documentation about it.
Mario Ricalde
@MarioRicalde
Also, is there any documentation on how to use this with portrait monitors? I keep getting really really tall windowsi nstead of horizontal ones.
Ian
@ianfixes
portrait monitors should be no problem. It sounds like you might be using the "tall" layout instead of the "wide" layout though
If you're just looking for your windows to be tiled as individual rows, use the "row" layout. you may also want to experiment with increasing the "main pane count" on the wide layout. check the preferences dialog to look up the hotkeys for all of these
Mario Ricalde
@MarioRicalde
Thank you ! Is there any documentation about the ~/.amethyst file @ianfixes ?
