Magnet for Mac2.6.0

15 April 2021

Snap windows into various sizes and positions.

What is Magnet for Mac

Window Magnet will change the way you work with your Mac! Easily snap windows into various sizes and positions by simply dragging them to the edges and corners of the screen. Maximize them, place them side by side or deploy them into all four quarters of your screen in the blink of an eye.

Features:
  • Move and Resize. In just one drag you snap any window into left, right, top and bottom halves and into all four quarters of your screen.
  • Real Fullscreen. Go nice, full, edge-to-edge fullscreen by simply dragging any window to the top of the screen and don't mess with that tiny green "zoom" button that almost never seems to do what you want it to.
  • Easy Restore. Return a window to its previous size by simply dragging it from its snapped position and it will pop back to the shape it had before.
  • Menu Bar Assistant. Access all features and preferences through menu bar icon sitting right at the top of your screen to be on hand any time you need it.
  • Keyboard Shortcuts. For all you keystroke lovers, use predefined keyboard shortcuts or create your very own ones that fit your needs.
  • External Display Support. Manage your bigger workspace at the speed of light, even on external display.
  • Switchers Friendly. If you've experimented with Windows 7, you may have used something very similar and will be pleased to have one of the greatest window management tools on your shiny new Mac.

I'm happy to see that the author now took steps to explain what the "Dynamo" menu entry is/was on a fresh installation of Magnet. Appears to be their new app. I have no intentions of clicking the link out on the Internet from Magnet. The last time I tried it ended up being som obscure iTunes website. I'm certain that at the time it linked to the iTunes Music Store. I am unsure if the new app is indeed Dynamo or something else.

It would be nice if it could remember custom window sets outside the apps edge views. I use Finder Window Manager which enables me to create windows stets to my own specifications. But it doesn't work well in Mojave. If it's not updated to 64bit, eventually I'll need a replacement. All the other Window managers, including this one, use window edges to divide windows. I don't use the edges. With FWM I can put windows anywhere I want and create a set to remember the size and location. Sadly, no one else seems to take this approach.

Very useful and it took very little time to get used to the key combos. I don’t usually use key combos, but these are pretty simple and easy to use. It would be nice if Magnet could remember size and arrangement presets for windows by application, or even better, remember a preset for a desktop (like activating the preset in Magnet would open the applications for that desktop, already arranged and resized).

I'm a blown away! I work on two monitors, and with the shortcuts I can move windows left to right across both of my screens. I have definitely increased my comfort and speed at which I can do my work. On top of it all, my workspace is more organized and I feel like I can even think more clearly because of it :-) Well worth the price for something lightweight but useful.
