@firenice03,

If you don't have the Panel Preferences set to Intelligently hide the panel, I don't think it is going to.

That sounds right - Center Top filling upper half..

I'm actually saying it did that in the 2.x series.  Not the 3.x series.

Checked.. in 3.4 snapping to Top Center = Full Screen

Nothing occurs when snapping Center Bottom (tool bar is active - not hiding)

@firenice03,

I think it might be related to the change between XFCE 4.10/4.11 -> XFCE 4.12.  In the 2.x series, snapping to the center top fills the top half of the screen.  Snapping to the center bottom fills the bottom half of the screen.  But in the 3.x series, snapping to the center top effectively maximizes full screen.  And snapping to the center bottom does nothing.  I'm not testing LL 3.4 Beta right now, but that was the behavior I was getting in a LL 3.2 virtual machine.  If you're getting the same results using the beta, that is consistent with what I've seen in the 3.x series (once I activate snapping, of course).

@torreydale

Currently it gives more options than Win7... Left Half/Right Half or Top goes full screen..

Kudos!!!

I'll double check it, I believe I have the toolbar set to auto-hide which maybe invoking the tool bar vs. the snap..

I'll confirm this evening - or its me LOL

@firenice03,

Your snapping results are what I expect.  However, I'm not sure why the 3.x series doesn't snap to the center bottom, only left bottom or right bottom.  It does snap to the center bottom in the 2.x series, though.  Maybe it's an XFCE thing.

@firenice03, individual driver issues cannot be addressed. If we committed to this, I can't begin to imagine the workload it would create :( All the same, your info will help others.

Yes, informational.. FYI ;D ;D... Mentioned as I had to hard boot - previously it just didn't work..

As for snapping:
Office - Writer & Calc; Image Viewer, Terminal, FireFox, Archive Manager, Leafpad, Thunar, VLC and GParted all snapped..

Snapping seemed to work on all 7 positions, Upper Right, Upper Middle, Upper Left, Lower Right and Lower Left corners along with Right Side Middle and Left Side Middle..

Gimp, Lite Welcome, Lite Software, Lite Tweaks were some that did not snap..

I am on the mini with a 1024x600 resolution, I am able to easily find the positions but could be limited with those application that didn't...

I've been playing with this. These are my settings for tiling and snapping to work properly.

I haven't tested the 3.4 beta yet.  To make window snapping work, I just change the two settings I mentioned in Window Manager and Window Manager Tweaks.  That tends to work for me.  If they're embedded changes as part of 3.4, I assume it should work the same as when I manually make the changes.

GIMP is such a large window, I don't think it tends to snap regardless.  I don't think it even snapped in another distribution with snapping enabled by default like Mint Cinnamon.

I'm happy to see the change added.  I think it'll be a welcomed addition.

Would love to hear more on window snapping to ensure we have covered everything we need to in that area. @torreydale, have we covered everything in regards to window snapping etc?
