NAME

       Arrange - AfterStep module for arranging windows in a tiling or cascading order

CONFIGURATION OPTIONS

DESCRIPTION

       Arrange  was developed to replace Tile and Cascade which were present in AfterStep 1.8 and
       stopped working with the introduction of AfterStep 2.0. Like Tile and Cascade Arrange  can
       be used to tile or cascade windows subject to certain constraints.

       By default Arrange will cascade windows located on the current screen.

OPTIONS

       -a

              Causes all window styles to be affected, even ones with the WindowListSkip style.

       -alldesks

              Causes windows on all desks to be effected.

       -desk

              Causes all windows on the desk to be cascaded instead of the current screen only.

       -H

              Causes  windows  to be tiled horizontaly. This will only have an effect if -tile is
              passed.

       -incx arg

              Specifies a horizontal increment which is successively added to  arranged  windows.
              arg  is a percentage of screen width, or pixel value if a p is suffixed. Default is
              20p.

       -incy arg

              Specifies a vertical increment which is successively added to arranged windows. arg
              is  a  percentage  of  screen height, or pixel value if a p is suffixed. Default is
              20p.

       -m

              Causes maximized windows to also be affected (implied by -all).

       -mn arg

              Tiles up to arg windows in tile direction. If more windows exist, a  new  direction
              row or column is created (in effect, a matrix is created).

       -noraise

              Inhibits window raising, leaving the depth ordering intact.

       -nostretch

              Inhibits window expansion when using the -resize option. Win- dows will only shrink
              to fit the maximal width and height (if given).

       -pattern arg

              Only arrange windows matching the supplied pattern.

       -r

              Reverses the window sequence.

       -resize

              Forces all windows to resize to the constrained width and height (if given).

       -s

              Causes sticky windows to also be affected (implied by -all).

       -t

              Causes transient windows to also be affected (implied by -all).

       -tile

              Causes windows to be tiled not cascaded.

       -u

              Causes untitled windows to also be affected (implied by -all).

INVOCATION

       Arrange can be invoked from the autoexec file or by binding  the  action  "Module  Arrange
       [args]" to a key-stroke in a feel file.

CONFIGURATION OPTIONS

       Command-line arguments passed to Arrange are described in the OPTIONS section.

       Up to four numbers can be placed on the command line that are not switches. The first pair
       specify an x and y offset to start the first window (default is 0,  0).  The  second  pair
       specify  an  absolute  coordi-  nate  reference  denoting the lower right bounding box for
       tiling. If any number is suffixed with the letter p, then it is taken to be a pixel value,
       otherwise  it  is interpreted as a screen percentage. Specifying zero for any parameter is
       equivalent to not specifying it.

       This invocation will horizontally tile windows with a bounding box which starts at  10  by
       10 percent into and down the screen and ends at 90 by 90 percent into and down the screen.

       Arrange 10 10 90 90 -tile -H

       It is probably not a good idea to delete windows while windows are being arranged.
