More Metacity magic

hide | show
Metacity (the Gnome windowmanager) seems to be plenty of great features. I tried to sum all of 'm in my "Gnome windowmanager magic" post but I forgot one and put it in the next post. Today I got a comment from Vincent learning me a new metacity trick. I quote him:
If you move a window in metacity while holding the "shift" key, the window will snap to all the stuff that is on your screen (other windows, panels, screen sides, etc).
Thanks very much!

This tip is extremely useful when using GNOME Screen Ruler.

My OSX-using friend always has a terrible time aligning screen rulers to other windows!

Also note: You can combine this tip with holding Alt and dragging a window from anywhere.

I don't use the screen-ruler, but I see the opportunities :D.
Gnome 1-0 OS-X :p
