SizeUp for Mac1.7.4

18 June 2019

Quickly position a window to fill a designated part of your screen.

What is SizeUp for Mac

SizeUp allows you to quickly position a window to fill exactly half the screen (splitscreen), a quarter of the screen (quadrant), full screen, or centered via the menu bar or configurable system-wide shortcuts (hotkeys). Similar to "tiled windows" functionality available on other operating systems.

Additional features include moving windows from one monitor to another, from one Space to another, and restoring a window to its original size and position (SnapBack).

What's new in SizeUp

Version 1.7.4:
Improved:
  • Support for macOS 10.14 Mojave.
  • Check for systems with broken AppleScript.
Fixed:
  • Microsoft Office windows not moving between Spaces.
  • "Third Lower" AppleScript action not working.

Nice app. Does what it says. Looks good. And I love the developer. But I went with Spectacle, which is nearly identical in its basic functionality (doesn't offer margins, etc) but is completely free.

I bought this when it was first launched, and fast forward 2015 glad i did.. This is heaps better than divvy, the el capitan feeble attempt is a complete joke. What made me write this review was being delighted about how it also knows about multiple monitors, its allowed me to create a perfect workflow to keep focused with tonnes of apps open. I know better touch tool does all this stuff for free, but when i last used it it i noticed a performance impact on my old c2d.. Anyways... Simple and elegant to bring window management on par with windows 10. Nice one.

This program is much better than 10.11's split screen. Seems to work fine in it as well as 10.0. It is a great program.

When I begun to use a Mac, some months ago, I tested several window managers. SizeUp was my choice: it is a simple, well designed and stable app that do what promises. SizeUp does not bloat the system and you can even hide its menu bar icon. This app lets you define how the screen would be divided. For me, a nice setup is to use 100-0% of vertical space and 75-25% of horizontal. With this, I can use shortcuts to distribute bigger windows to left (as Safari or Together) and small ones to right (as Dictionary or Text Edit). When an application must use all screen room (as Photoshop or InDesign), there is also a shortcut to this. The only improvement I can see is to have two options regarding the center window command: one to just center the window, without any resizing, and other to resize it to a given measure. Today, SizeUp offers this two possibilities, but you chose one or other. To have both would be a good addition.

I'm in a desing/development shop and with my 27" imac there's lots of screen space so I en up with many many windows open. SizeUp makes it a little more sane to look at!

As a student, this software is amazing. Snapping a powerpoint presentation to one side of the screen and notes (or facebook :) to the other is priceless. Very stable and easy to use, seems like it should've been included with OSX in the first place.

Very nice app but i have one regret (or is it there somewhere and i couldn't find it?): the absence of automatic, global "tile" function for each app -- you have to resize each window individually to finally get a tiled screen. The numerous options / default choices already present in this app would allow this function to be implemented quite easily by the developer, i think. (If anyone reading this knows of piece of freeware or shareware that offers an automatic tiling of the open windows of one application (whether Finder or other apps), I would love to know. None of the apps i tested allow this.)

I use it constantly and is one of my most favorite utilities. If you do any kind of work where you need several windows open and viewable at the same time, especially with multiple monitor setups, this is something you need. I quickly learned the keyboard shortcuts I use 90% of the time. For the other seldom used functions it provides, they are only a click away in the menu bar. The detail of preferences, such as setting desired boarder space is genius. It is one of those programs you needed but did never knew it. That is why I am writing this review. Everyone using several windows/monitors should to try it. On a Mac, it makes the Windows OS's stupid implementation of "windows within windows" just plain juvenile.

Great little app to improve your workflow, especially if you prefer to use the keyboard. The nice thing about the demo is that it's fully functional (it only adds a nag screen). But now I've paid for it. :) The only thing it's missing that I wish it had is the ability to *separately* center a window vs. center and resize. Currently you can only do one or the other. So I end up using a separate utility to center a window only.

Nice trinket but I've just found Keyboard Maestro includes most of this functionality in Interface Control --> Manipulate a Window. Too many little utilities slow and clutter one's Mac. Not to mention a pain in the neck to maintain and keep up to date. I prefer to use just one or two master programs.

SizeUp - it is very convenient and very fast program that allows you to manage your open windows by arranging them in different parts of the screen, and not only ... Thanks for the SizeUp, open windows can be uniformly arranged not only in the two halves of the desktop, but in four. This allows you to simultaneously work with four windows open, which facilitates the selection and move files from multiple folders. Also present configuration management Spaces. SizeUp - has a very flexible configuration management. The work with the annex may be implemented by combinations of keys that can be changed at their discretion, as well as through the menu bar, select the desired item with the mouse. Thank you developers for the wonderful product! Best Regards Vitaly!

This is the closest I've been able to come to a replacement for WindowShade, and it's allowed me to finally make the move to Snow Leopard as such. I only ever used windowshading to get a top window out of the way in order to see something beneath it, and SizeUp does just that for me. I have my top window "shrink" to the upper right corner of my screen. I also like that the program remembers window settings. I can "shrink" a window, go to another program, and when I return to that window, it will still remember its original settings. This is a very nice program, and the developer has also been very responsive. (He even made a short video specifically for me to explain some things when I inquired about it. I promptly bought the program and have been very happy.)

I'm so totally addicted to this. Without sizeup, OS X wouldn't be quite as useful. It would be nice to have finderminder and possibly cinch integrated into sizeup though. Anyway, thanks for the ability to use margins to separate windows from each other. Looks much more neat and organized that way! I've got ctrl+meta (it's a pc keyboard with a numpad) mapped with 7,9,1,3 for corner windows, 8,4,6,2 for half-screen windows, 5 for maximize, 0 for "snapback", and they key right above TAB for "center window" set up (one hand combo). This is a 5-star product. It's totally worth the money i paid for it. Looking forward to see what can be added or improved upon in this product.

I must say, sizeup is a wonderful application! The features are great and the app is well-written. The seconds of resizing windows really adds up after awhile, definitely work the $13. Plus, the developers are very nice- they respond punctually to emails and I hope that irridiated labs will continue to provide awesome apps! yet another reason to buy a mac. It starts up immediately at launch, and I have yet to see sizeup (or even twoup) crash: very stable background app. Please support!

I bought it . It works. I have not seen any ill effects on my Mac Pro 2.66. It already saved me time in the demo mode . I'm not much on hot keys ... just hunt and peck . I use multiple monitors so I have different apps and browsers open all the time. It helps with space management . I also use a Jave app for day trading . It worked on it too. So simple .. but yet effective. I hope you make a mil. on the app . thanks

What a nice little piece of software. I have tried other windows manager apps but SizeUp is the best for my need. Simple and effective to use, with the right amount of features, SizeUp is real time saver and solve my biggest gripe with the Finder. And the asking price is right too. After a couple of hours using it, I was sold. Well done!

SizeUp is great, filling a need I didn't know I had. Now I use it religiously... every time I open a new window. I like having a 20px margin around everything so my desktop shows through, and I have SizeUp set up to use the right third of the screen for small apps, then the left two-thirds for large windowed apps... and everything looks so nice and tidy. I find I often surf with two Safari windows open now, I'll pop open a video and hit the keys to make SizeUp shove that into the top of the screen, then I'll surf in another window on the bottom, then when the video is over I can hit a few keys and my surfing window goes right back to where it was to begin with. Same thing works great for having ftp and several finder windows open at the same time... it just looks so much nicer and is easier to work with. Also, I mentioned to the developer that it would be cool if the feature that lets you move windows to other spaces could also do so by pressing a modifier and the number of the space you want, and he sent me a beta version and some applescripts that let me do just that! A quick key press now sends my todo list back and forth to to the space that has the app I'm working with at the time, and it ends up right in the gap to the side of the app. No dragging things around to make several things visible all at once. Cool!

SizeUp is a great way to move program's windows around your monitor(s). There is no extra fluff to muddy the interface, and you can choose your own keyboard shortcuts. After using it a short while, I will no longer move my windows around any other way. The "Name your own price" pricing methodology is the most honest and flexible method I've seen. It brings shareware back the way it was intended to be! Double plus good all around!
