Mosaic – A Kind of App that Every MAC User Might Need

When we use a computer, we often need multiple windows to open at the same time, but also do not block the situation.

For example, when I was writing a paper, I would even use four windows:

  • Writing Software window
  • Document window
  • Use Google to help me understand sentences quickly
  • Use dictionaries to find words accurately

In this case, all kinds of occupations are not uncommon, and even some occupations will encounter more special and complex window arrangement.

If you don’t have a window management software, each time you rely on a pointer to drag the size and position of each window, it’s a torment, and it’s a serious understatement of the extent of modern software development.

▍ Uses “drag and drop” to make the layout window incredibly easy

In fact, there has long been a lot of window management tool software on the market, they can quickly assign the window to the good.

But the problem with older generation window management software is that they’re all doing it with shortcuts.

Window management with shortcut keys has a great disadvantage:

Its original sin is to use a large number of shortcuts: Let’s think, two equal screens, three equal screens, four equal screens, these 3 cases, need 2 + 3 + 4 = 9 shortcut keys.

Therefore, it consumes a large number of shortcut keys.

Finally, we all know that the more shortcuts you have, the harder it is to remember.

And in this respect, Mosaic gives another, smarter answer-it cleverly uses the operational logic of drag-and-drop (Drag & dropped).

As we drag the window, Mosiac temporarily displays the preset window layout on the screen in an almost native way, simply dragging and dropping the window onto one of the layout icons, and the window automatically resizes and moves the position accordingly. The scenes mentioned at the beginning can be dealt with so easily:

Of course, if you still particularly like shortcuts, Mosaic can also satisfy you. You can customize the window layout you need, and then specify a shortcut key for any layout. I now think of shortcuts as a drag-and-drop aid, especially commonly used will use shortcut keys, operation faster, and the number of shortcuts is not much to remember.

In fact, Mosaic also allows us to set only one shortcut key, when this shortcut key is pressed, the layout list is called out, and then you can use the pointer to select the layout method for the current window. This makes the operation of window management more flexible by the way shortcuts and drag-and-drop are used together.

▍ According to his own habits, customize as much as he wants.

To meet different usage habits, Mosaic also offers a wealth of options to allow users to customize as they please.

For example, there are 3 ways to just call out the layout interface:

Drag the window directly to display the layout interface.

Press and hold the ⌥Option key to drag the window to display the layout interface.

Drag the window to the top of the menu bar to display the layout interface. At the same time, Mosaic can be implemented in a very rich layout way.

In addition to the common two-grade screen, three-equal screen, four-equal screen, a variety of parameters of the custom layout can be added, modified in their preferences.

Layouts are edited in two different ways: normal layout (Layout) and Advanced layout (Advanced Layout). Normal layouts are edited in the form of grids-the number of grids in the grid, the grids occupied by the windows, and the boundary dimensions of the windows can be freely adjusted:

Advanced layouts can control the length, width, and position of a window with more precise parameters (pixels or percentage of the screen):

▍ Summary

The last trouble with Window management is multi-monitor, and at this point, Mosaic can also be easily competent. And if your Mac has a touch bar, it’s more convenient, and you can even use shortcuts directly to show the window layout on the Touch bar!

Window management is a feature that every MAC user will use, and Mosaic is an ideal choice for implementing this feature.
