New DisplayFusion User - Maximize across two splits? Snapping seems "weak"?

Hi all,

I just started using DisplayFusion with my 42.5" monitor and I'm very happy with it - thanks for the Christmas sale.

Does DisplayFusion support maximizing across multiple splits? i.e. if I have a vertical split, sometimes I want the Window to use only the top split, other times both - is this possible?

Lastly, Window snapping doesn't seem as sticky as AquaSnap ... is this how snapping behaves with DisplayFusion?

Thanks.

If you hold the Shift key while maximizing a window it will bypass the splits and fill the whole monitor, is this what you're looking for?

When you say not as sticky, what do you mean? It doesn't catch it from as far away, or something else? Thanks!

Let's say I have two splits, is there a way to select how many splits a window fills up?

Normally I want a window to maximize over 1 split, but occasionally I want it to maximize over 2 split

As for stickiness it doesn't seem as obvious as AquaSnap, the catching of the edges is not as obvious as some other apps.

There isn't a way to choose how many splits to span the window, but if you only have 2 splits, holding Shift when maximizing the window will maximize it across both splits because they take up the whole screen anyways.

For the Window Snapping, can you try increasing the Snap Distance on the DisplayFusion Settings > Window Snapping tab?

Thanks!

Are there plans to implement maximizing a window across multiple splits? (i.e. I have 2 splits on the left half of the monitor, and 3 splits on the right; I want the window to 'auto fit' or maximize itself to either the 2 splits on the left, or 3 splits on the right)

There wouldn't be a way to do that using the mouse, but you could create Custom Functions for spanning the whatever splits, like so:

  • Move and size the window to whatever size you want.
  • On the Settings > Functions tab, click Custom Functions > Add Custom Function.
  • Give it a name and optionally a key combination.
  • Click and drag the blue target icon and drop it on the window.
  • Click OK.
  • Optionally select it in the list and click "Toggle TitleBar Button" to add it to the top of all application windows.
  • Click OK and test it out.

Hope that helps!

Initially, this wasn't what I was going for, but the more I played around with it, it will do exactly what I needed. Thank you so much for the help and quick response! There are a ton of features in DisplayFusion and I'm still learning. Much appreciated Keith!
