Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 209446
No window overlap "resistance"
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:45 EST
Description of problem:
Without desktop effects on, when I move a window it has "resistance" when it
first abuts with another window; this allows easy placement of windows next to
each other. When I turn desktop effects on, this "resistance" no long is present
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. enable desktop effects
2. make two gnome-terminal windows
3. move one up to the other
I would expect the window to pause and "resist" overlapping the other windows
when the two edges meet.
No resistance to overlapping.
You can press shift while moving windows to get this effect.
That's great that I can do it, but isn't it still confusing the the user that
when they enable wobbly windows that they now have to use shift to get the
window alignment behavior they had before? It doesn't say that when they turn
on the effect. Can one make the "resistance" behavior on always without using
"shift"? If so, couldn't that be set to the default so the alignment behavior
is consistent whether the window is wobbly or not? Just my 2 cents.
