Is there a way to automatically tile newly opened windows and change the layout depending on how many windows are open?

Similar to i3-gaps on Linux.

This would make this program an absolute killer for me and I would love it so much. I already do. But I would love it even more!

Would you just want them tiled at equal sizes to fill the screen? Or do you need to be able to specify different sizes/zones depending on the number of open windows?

It would be good to be able to specify different sizes/zones depending on the number of open windows.

Ok, thanks! There isn't currently a way to do this, but I've added your request to our feature request list. If it's something we're able to implement in a future version, we'll definitely let you know.

Thanks!

Thanks!

Please take a look at how i3-gaps does it on Linux, it does it really well.

Depending on the amount of windows open, it automatically tiles it depending on a set number of rules.

Yep! I attached a link to a YouTube video that demos i3-gaps to the feature request so that we can have a look at it if/when we're planning to implement it.

Thanks!

Hope this doesn't count as bumping a dead thread, but I would absolutely love this feature.

Currently I try to use Divvy http://mizage.com/divvy/
and AquaSnap https://www.nurgo-software.com/products/aquasnap to get tiled management, but back on linux, I found i3 https://i3wm.org/ invaluable. If any approximation in DisplayFusion could be made, or if you guys ever come out with a new product for it (!!!) I would be extremely grateful.

I will be looking into monitor splits and padding today after work, but a true tiled windows manager on Windows is the dream.

Thanks for DisplayFusion!
