I don't really getting the whole "space" concept here on Amethyst...
I'm using a MacBookPro with an external monitor. My external monitor is my main screen and the laptop display is my secondary screen. I know I can throw windows to space 1, or 2, or 3... but I don't know how to switch to that space... I'm probably misunderstanding the concept.

@lecovi
Ohhhhhh, Spaces are the ones that createas when I hit the green button to go to full screen...
ok, so, for switching to different spaces I use the Ctrl+Left arrow/Right Arrow shortcut, right?
(BTW, thanks for the quick response)
Ian Ynda-Hummel
@ianyh
You can use that, yeah.
You can also configure ones for specific space numbers.
lecovi
@lecovi
I can configure Amethyst to show me a specific space with a shortcut or is a MacOS feature? I didn't find how to do it in either case :confused:
Ian Ynda-Hummel
@ianyh
@lecovi in macOS System Preferences there should be a Shortcuts pane somewhere. Maybe under Keyboard?

Thanks! I'll look with better detail xD

[first post] I've really been enjoying this app, thank you. Had a question (I tried to search first, but couldn't find an answer). I keep 8-10 different desktops/spaces open. When I switch between them (eg, sliding to left or right using ctrl + left/right arrow), quite often the window orientations used by amethyst will "flip". That is, what is on the right half of window will go to the left, and vice versa. Is there a way to stop this from happening? While I really like the app it is annoying to have to keep moving windows back into place many times a day. Thanks!
Ian Ynda-Hummel
@ianyh
There’s a system setting that reorders spaces based on usage. Do you have that enabled?
If so it confuses Amethyst as the spaces are indexed rather than identified; space 2 rather than space with id abc.
Mark Grobaker
@mgrobaker_twitter
Thanks! but not sure that's it. Just tried disabling that setting and relaunching Amethyst (no sys restart done though). Still seeing issue.
Also, note that it's not the spaces that are switching. It's that the windows within a space sometimes switch places, and this occurs when I just come into a new space.

I am using Amethyst with a second monitor on a MacBook Air. The monitors are independent and display different things. Is there a way to make Amethyst do different displays on each monitor?
Ian Ynda-Hummel
@ianyh
Yeah, displays should have independent layouts.
The cycling happens on whatever display the cursor is on.

Hey, I really love amethyst! However, I find that obsidian doesn't respect some dimension and whenever I have monitor setup, one big screen vertically to my MacBook, windows on native screen MacBook, seems indent screens like 20-100px tho the left, to the vertical one, do you know what issue could it be?

hi all, I have been working on a clone of Amethyst for windows 10: it's released with the MIT license. I thought it could be interesting for someone here who work on windows too.

Hi folks, does anyone know how to set preferred persistent layout for specific workspaces? Additionally, can we have amethyst remember our preferred layouts. For instance, on workspace 1, I have set the layout to Floating and on workspace 2 to Tall. The problem is that if I quit amethyst and restart it, all workspaces default to the Tall layout, is there any way around this?
Fredrik Friis
@androidfred

Any chance of Amethyst introducing a monocle layout?

Side note: is Amethyst for macOS maintained still? Looks like development stopped in 2020, and I don't see any open issues etc in GitHub...

@willsheldon
Hi folks :) 3-column layout seems to be broken in OSX Monterey (12.0 beta), I've not put a detailed report together yet, or tried much to fix it, but figured I'd post a warning here.
Will Sheldon
@willsheldon
Clearing preferences seems to have fixed it. :)

@ianyh
Yes it is maintained, I'm just very busy. 😱

On the main page, the instructions to install via brew are "brew cask install amethyst". This will produce "Error: Unknown command: cask". I believe the instructions might need to be updated to "brew install --cask amethyst". Apologies it is meant that way.
Ian Ynda-Hummel
@ianyh
Yeah, the website hasn’t been updated in a while because I update it with releases.
It’s fixed on the repo.
Would anyone want to try a build that supports custom layouts? I’m looking for people to try out making their own layouts with it so I can feel out the functionality more before merging it in.

Has anyone tried to make amethyst function like i3? I'm looking for an macOS experience as close to i3 as possible. eyeing amethyst and yabai at the moment

@d1rewolf
hello all. I love amethyst and use it every day. However, lately, for some reason it seems to slooooowww down or just freeze completely. When it slows down, events will lag by 30 seconds or more and I get the rainbow pinwheel when hovering the icon. Any ideas what is causing this or how to troubleshoot? It's slowly making amethyst unusable for me :-/

@seand52
Hey, is it possible to modify config (such as mod key bindings) in a config file? I tried making a ~/.amethyst file but it gives an error when loading the app
Andy
@drewauff
@seand52 I agree, I would like to be able send specific apps to the main window when they are launched.
Anton
@antonk52

Hi, I can see that a while back a section from readme was removed about the configuration file. Also the code for loading the config file is still present in the development branch. Plus a default config file is still in the development branch.

If I create ~/.amethyst file, the app warns me about the file when I enter in app preferences but it seems that the configuration from the file is not being applied. Is this still a reliable way to have an external and versioned configuration for amethyst or is it no longer supported?

@d1rewolf are you running on M1? I started noticing this after I got a new Air.

Hi, is there a shortcut or a quick way to tile all of the existing windows in the space automatically after Amethyst has just started up?
Ian Ynda-Hummel
@ianyh
It should happen by default when it’s launched. Might be a bug.

Hello! I'm pretty new to Amethyst. I was looking for something i3-like. I like the BSP idea, but I can't figure it out for amethyst. If I'm in the BSP layout, how do I determine where the new window will be placed?

@davidstockman
Each time I relaunch amethyst, each desktop layout gets reset to the layout listed first in preferences. I have "Restore layouts on launch" checked. Is anyone else having this problem? Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix? Thanks.

It would be nice to be able to override height controls in tall mode so that I can make windows taller or shorter as I need them
HanSooloo
@HanSooloo
Is it possible for windows to retain their relative position in a screen when thrown to another space/screen? e.g., my Messages app is in upper right corner, not directly attached to the edges. Want it to appear in upper right corner. However, when thrown, windows always go to the upper left corner, fully attached to the edges
Andy
@drewauff
@HanSooloo The closest thing Ive found is "send new windows to main pane"

Is there a way to always open only certain apps in the main window only?
