Window Scaling

One feature that I am missing that UltraMon has.

I would like to see window scaling when a window is moved between monitors of differing resolutions. The window is resized so that its proportions remain the same. Right now if you move a window from smaller resolution to larger resolution, the window size stays the same. I would like an option to upsize (or downsize as required) the window size so that its proportion remains the same.

I think this can be done with hot key macros, though you'll have to play with it: see attached... I think this came up before so maybe someone will hop in with an example...

Thanks, the proportion option handles hot ketys but that still leaves a need.

When I drag a window across monitors, I need for it to proportionally resize. Example, dragging a window larger than the destination monitor, as the window comes onto the monitor, it need to display proportionally so that it isn't exceeding the size of the monitor.

Take a look at the HotKey called "Move window to next monitor and size proportionally". It does exactly what you want.

Please read my second message again. This relates to dragging a window, not a hot key. This is functionality that UltraMon has. Sometimes I wish to use the mouse to position windows and they don't resize proportionally when moved to another monitor in this manner.

Sorry, I mis-understood you. In the next version there will be titlebar buttons added to application windows (like UltraMon) which will allow you to use the mouse to move a window to the next monitor and size it proportionally. It's not the same as dragging the window, but it should work fairly well.
