I've discovered a bug (with the following configuration):

(a) AWM > Mouse > Drag and Scroll > Make the entire window area responsive to dragging/sizing > CTRL+ALT (Enabled)

(b) AWM > Mouse > Multiple Monitors > Tight monitor boundaries 0.2 sec (and it is super easy to replicate when set to 0.3 sec)

© AWM > Desktop Divider > Enabled Desktop Divider (Enabled) > Always (Sel ected)

(d) Monitor #1 (left-primary), Monitor #2 (right-secondary)

Using the process in another bug posting encountered this bug, see other related at link:

When moving fr om monitor #1 to monitor #2 while CTRL+ALT and dragging an application (left to right), the application gets "stuck" (pulled to what appears the Tile Frame, but its not on it as it is sticking about twice the distance of the Tile Preview width fr om the Tile Preview) before the monitor boundary.

When you continue moving the application it sticks at the monitor boundary as desired, but keep moving to monitor #2. IF you then move back to monitor #1 and then back to monitor #2 (continue process until). Eventually the application you have will get put behind another application which is maximized on monitor #2 (when moving to monitor #2) AND the Tile Preview will be displayed AND you can't move the application you were moving. Title Preview is still displayed on both monitors.

You then have to minimize the on top application or another method to find the application you were moving around via CTRL+ALT (as in my configuration) select it and then move it and release (CTRL+ALT) and the Tile Preview is disengaged (Tile Preview indicators on both monitors are removed).

Well, this issue seems to be the one I haven't managed to reproduce and/or haven't managed to understand. Lars, could you please add more details here?

Thanks in advance!

Can reproduce 100% of the time using this procedure:

( a ) AWM > Mouse > Drag and Scroll > Make the entire window area responsive to dragging/sizing > CTRL+ALT (Enabled)

( b ) AWM > Mouse > Multiple Monitors > Tight monitor boundaries 0.2 sec

( c ) AWM > Desktop Divider > Enabled Desktop Divider (Enabled) > Always (Sel ected)

( d ) Monitor #1 (left-primary), Monitor #2 (right-secondary)

( e ) Have PDF-XChange Viewer (most current version) running Monitor #2 with PDF document open, Maximized

( f ) Have Firefox running on Monitor #2 in the foreground, selected, focus

( g ) CTRL+ALT + left-click mouse and move Firefox to Monitor #1 and then back to Monitor #2. It is critical the mouse pointer crosses the two monitor boundary when moving fr om Monitor #2 to Monitor #1 (then back again), yet never move the entire application on one of the monitors, this is just a back and forth process crossing the monitor boundary.

( h ) Repeat step (g) until like magic PDF-XChange Viewer gets the foreground focus (Monitor #2) and Firefox been put in the background on Monitor #2. You can move the mouse pointer around and select PDF-XChange Viewer and do anything else, BUT AWM is stuck in the CTRL+ALT + left-click mouse mode with the Layout Preview (purple) and Tile Preview (red) displayed during this limbo mode. You must select Firefox and get application focus for it and then end the "move mode" is terminated and returned to normal (the Layout and Tile Preview rectangles are removed)

PDF-XChange Viewer:

Firefox:

Are you able to reproduce?

Sincerely,
Lars

Hello, Lars!

The issue has finally been confirmed. The matter turns out to be that in Windows 7 activating Aero Shake twice in a row cancels the window dragging, and that's when the Divider Tiles Preview gets frozen. We will try to fix this!

Thank you for your help!
Best regards.
