AWM 8.2.1
Windows 7 64-bit

AWM > Options > Window Snapping > Classic > To other windows = ENABLED

Note: The following is also enabled:
AWM > Options > Window Snapping > Classic > To monitor/desktop boundaries = ENABLED (30 pixels)


When on a multiple monitor configuration, desktop mode, on the border of the two monitors the dragging window has snapped to the monitor border if there is a window above it and it also snaps to it the border snap is incorrectly calculated (appears to remove the width of the sizable frame). OR it is performing an inside window snap which isn't enabled (regardless the result is unexpected). Occurs 100 percent of the time.

See screen shots for visual reference: snapped



Sincerely,
Lars

Dear Zardoz2293,

thank you for your post!

Could the window get snapped to the nearby monitor's horizontal boundary?

Best regards.

Primary monitor #1 (landscape 2560x1440), Secondary monitor #2 (portrait 1440x2560)

AWM = v8.2.2

At the Secondary monitor #2, moving window in upward direction, from below the horizon of the bottom of Primary monitor #1, it will NOT snap (at bottom of monitor #1), but will snap at the top of monitor #1 (although the snap position appears to be off by the number of pixels in the window frame being moved). The vertical snap at the monitor boundary is now what appears to be off by a factor of 3 of the vertical window frame. It is moved even more onto monitor #1 than before.

UPDATE:
For clarification this problem seems to be directed at Firefox which I'm frequently performing the actions which cause this behavior.

Sincerely,
Lars

Thank you for your reply, Lars!

Snapping to monitor/desktop boundaries indeed works "from the inside" only.

Is the issue possible to reproduce while Snapping to monitor/desktop boundaries is off?

Best regards.

I'm currently unable to reproduce the behavior. Since initially reporting Firefox produced an update. Since I use Firefox significantly and with moving it's tabs/windows around this may have only affected and was a problem internal to Firefox. I'll report greater details in this thread if it should appear again.

Sincerely,
Lars
