How to manage window position split options

Avatar from
36 discussion posts
Please tell me if there is a way to do the following on my ultrawide monitor: I want to be able to set any window to either 1/3 or 2/3 width, 1/3 in either left/middle/right, and 2/3 either left/right aligned, and to be able to do any of these configurations on the fly without adjusting splits. I can do this for 1/3 width using a 3-way split, but sometimes I want to also do 2/3 width, and I can't figure out how to do make that happen other than making the window small and dragging the corner to 2/3 size. Obviously, I'd like a way to automatically re-size the window to the left or right 2/3 of the monitor. I would prefer a way to do it with mouse only, but can accept a keyboard shortcut if needed. Help?

I think using functions as I described in this other post a minute ago will get you in the right direction.

Thanks, that worked! But one question: When I set the function to move the window to the 1/3 split on the right side of the screen, and set the width for 200%, and set the window alignment to "top-right corner of monitor", I would expect the window to cover the right 2/3 of the widescreen monitor. Instead, half of the window covers the right 1/3, and half is off-monitor. That's what I would expect if the alignment was "top-left corner of [virtual] monitor", but not right. Any ideas on this issue?

The window is always moved first, then resized, and width is always adjusted on the right-side of the window. So it's getting moved to the top-right corner, but then when the width is increased, it's increased to the right, putting it off the screen.

If you set it to move to the top-left corner of the middle split, then resize to 200% width, that should do what you're looking for :)
