Window Magician

Version 1.1.3

Automatic window re-sizer and re-positioner.

Window Magician overview

Window Magician helps streamline your user experience and optimize your workflow by automatically resizing and repositioning windows. Create "Window Watchers" to individually process windows with specific titles, from specific applications, and of specific types.

Ensure all of your Finder windows are positioned tightly in the most top-left corner of the screen. Ensure your Web browser windows are always the same size. Automatically reposition Photoshop's default new document window location. Move all modal dialogs to the center of your screen. The uses are endless!

Window Magician is a small application which can be configured to launch during login, and sits quietly in the menu bar. Take back control of window management today!

Nice app but there is no way to add any list of windows to the Scope tab. This makes it unusable.

With v1.06 you can now select the window you want to re-locate and size and the current size/coordinates will be auto-populated. This is now a 5 star utility. One last suggestion: Allow wild card characters in the window name for matching.

I like Window Magician's concept a lot - sticky automatic window positions - but as it is, it's just a nerve-wreck to use. As Sgginc mentioned, entering coordinates by hand is a trial and error work I don't want to go through. It could have a simple button to record the current window position but then again, without the aid of another window management app, such as Moom, you couldn't save pixel perfect window positions (how to know if a window is centered on screen using Window Magician alone?). Another serious flaw is the Title Scope preferences. As an example I wanted Mail.app main window to be a certain size and all new mails, replies and forwards to be a smaller size but still centered on screen (I hate newly opened cascading windows - open too many and they start going off screen). They're all normal windows so I can't make different rules for normal/floating/modal windows in this case. So I made a rule to process windows with certain titles only. Now here's the flaw, what about handling dynamic window titles? Only "New Message" is static, all replies and forwards have dynamic "Re: xxx" and "Fwd: xxx" names. Even the main window shows "Inbox: xx messages" so it's always dynamic. At the present stage, Window Magician works for a couple of apps but as previously said, trying to figure out coordinates by trial and error is something that makes me quit the trial after a couple minutes. Other window managers lack what Window Magician has to offer and the opposite is also true but I'm not running more than 1 app for window management (something OS X should have by default).

$19.95 for a one-trick pony? Apple is going to charge us the same price for hundreds of new features in the Mountain Lion upgrade. Consider $1.99 as a more realistic price.

This would be a killer utility if it could remember a window’s current position without having to enter all the pixel information for position and size. Just auto populate the window of interest’s current position/size information. Will probably buy and hope this is implemented later.
$19.95
