With iOS 11 now out, a lot of my fellow geeks have been going on about the drag and drop features with split view on iPad. 1 iMore recently had a post about using Split View on macOS. While I've known about the split view feature for a while, I've never found it very functional. The biggest issue I have with Split View is the function locks the applications into their own Space. So if you need a focused work area on two apps, Split View is great, but normally I'm bouncing between multiple apps on dual monitors.
Now using the built in token from KM, I can create macros to manipulate application windows.
Right now I have 8 macros I use for window management:
- Move window to left side of 1st monitor
- Move window to right side of 1st monitor
- Move window to left side of 2nd monitor
- Move window to right side of 2nd monitor
- Full size on 1st monitor
- Full size on 2nd monitor
- Make window 1024x768 2
- Minimize window
Here are the macro recipes for each.
Move App Window to Left Side of 1st Monitor
Move App Window to Left Side of 2nd Monitor
Move App Window to Right Side of 1st Monitor
Move App Window to Right Side of 2nd Monitor
Move App Window to Full Screen of 1st Monitor
Move App Window to Full Screen of 2nd Monitor
Move App Window to 1024x768 size
Minimize App Window
Download all 8 macros
I've made a library of all eight macros that you can download and import into Keyboard Maestro: Window Management KB Macros

Looking at the October released MBP, it's a gorgeous laptop. What's not to love. And timing couldn't have been better, because my MBP logic board on my 2012 model had just died and I was already looking …

The Case of the iPad Experiment
When I started thinking about going iPad only, I knew typing only on the screen keyboard was not going to be an option. My previous iPad was a Clam Case keyboard case and I knew I wanted something similar again. While the first Clam Case took it's share of beatings …
Accidental iPad Experiment
Sometimes you go out to try something new. Other times you're backed into a corner to adapt to a changing situation. A couple of months ago my MBP died. I didnt' panic1 about not having a computer because I still had my iPad and my work MBP. My iPad …
