has some potential and a lot of market as it is the only tool of this type that works with 10.9.. there is definitely a need for an app like this that can solve the window clutter issue.. developers please take a look at sticky windows from donelleschi .. http://www.donelleschi.com/stickywindows/ it was discontinued long ago but it was really promising.. you should copy that workflow which is better then the one you have.. in sticky windows you can easily identify the minimized app.. with this one however, the window gets too lost and it disappears when the mouse is away.. one should tuck by dragging the window to the edge and untuck by clicking on the tab.. tucking should be a user decision and not mouse away decision...

Thank you for the feedback. I plan on adding Tabs as an option, but it might not be in 1.0.

Very interesting little tool. Sadly doesn't work for me as I have multiple monitors and with 4 displays it just goes to another display vs actually hiding away on the display I'm on as I'd hoped.

Yep, multi-monitor support has been a bit spotty in Tuck. It's a hard problem to solve, but we're looked at it.

I'm just curious of people have found and made use of the Swipe feature to Tuck windows (https://vimeo.com/73894710).

If I could just have those small haxie windows from Unsanity again, my life would be complete.

A lot of visual types like me, which includes writers, need to see the window …rather than have it minimized to dock—out of sight, out of mind. Wonder if this comes near to that function.

Tuck's probably not what you're looking for. You might checkout Deskovery instead for the "window shade" trick.

Interesting start. One thing I noticed is that if you use Spaces the tucked windows pop out a bit whenever you change screens.

This is by design to let you know where windows are tucked. Currently there's a hidden option to disable this feature which will hopefully make its way into the Preferences in Tuck 1.1.

Thanks al lot!

I have been waiting for this since system 9. back than it was possible to drag a window to a edge of a screen and it was reduced to some label.

I hope to have the same "drag to edge to make a label" feature in Tuck before it releases. Stay tuned.

A few years back, I had set up a macro to do exactly this with Keyboard Maestro. Granted, that'll cost you probably a lot more than what this program eventually will. But it is a handy method. One thing I think would benefit this new program would be the ability to have the same hotkey both tuck and untuck a window. That was one of the nice features of the original Unsanity windowshade was that command-m would shade and unshade. My KM macro is set up to do this, and it's very handy if all you want to do is temporarily move only a single window out of the way and then bring it right back. Indeed, having played with this approach for years now, I would bet that most people will not want more than a very few windows pinned to the edge of the screen.

I miss more Unsanity' ability to minimize in place (or put the minimized windows on the screen edge). It was a nice system of clean window management. You can do this with the dock, but you're also stuck with everything else that's on the dock as well.

Anyway, I hope this new program succeeds.

There are a few quirks and glitches that need to be worked out, but oh man...this is the closest thing I've seen in years to OS 9's pop-up window functionality, which I've been missing for the last decade. It would be AMAZING if the developer could recreate that functionality in its entirety, but even what's there now is pretty great.

Version 1.0 (beta 6): tried on 10.5.8, for the fun. It works, even if it quits when I try "Cycle…".

Thank you for the report. I've reproduced the crash and will certainly look into it.
