toggle so that shift needs to be held down for splice dropping to occur

33 discussion posts
Current, splice dropping is enabled by default and shift is used to move window normally. Can there be an option to flip that so the slices are ignored by default and shift is needed for them to react to windows.

If you head to the Window Snapping tab in Display Fusion, you can adjust the snapping mode to "Only snap when modifier key is held down".

Hope that helps!

I'm not talking about window snapping. When I start moving a window, the screen shows: Drag to a split monitor to maximize
As I move the window over another slice, it says: Hold shift to drag window normally

So I just want normal window dragging to be the default

Ah, my mistake. This currently isn't possible but we do have it open as a feature request. I've added your vote to it, and if we have any information on it in the future, we'll be sure to let you know.

I would also love to have this as a feature. I'd prefer the maximizing to a window split to be "opt-in" using the modifier key rather than opt-out by default using the modifier key.

I use the splits every day in my work on my ultra-wide monitor, but often times just moving a window not already maximized that I am floating on top of everything I don't want it to start maximizing to one of the splits. I'd rather have to hold the modifier key in to make it snap for specific windows only.
