What’s new in version 1.0.0

Updated on Jul 20 2021

Version 1.0.0:
New Activation UX & UI:
  • When Penc is activated, it displays a fullscreen overlay that indicates all of the windows visible on your current screen. Now you can move & resize multiple windows in a single activation just by moving your cursor on the window you want.
Action Customization:
  • You can now customize resize dimensions of actions according to your screen. It supports multiple screens too. If you have a second widescreen monitor, you can set to resize a window's width as 1/3 of your screen when swiped left, just for that screen.
Simultaneously Resize Adjacent Windows:
  • When you resize a window from its edges & corners, Penc now resizes all the snapped and adjacent windows.
Right-Click to Minimize & Double-Click to Fullscreen:
2 new actions added to Penc:
  • Tap with two fingers (right-click) to minimize a window
  • Double-tap (double-click) to make a window fullscreen
Keyboard & Mouse Support:
When Penc is activated and a window is selected, with your keyboard:
  • Press arrow keys to snap the window into halves/quarters
  • Press enter key to toggle fullscreen
With your mouse:
  • Drag the window from its body and throw it to the direction you want to snap
  • Mouse wheel to resize the window
  • Double-click to toggle fullscreen
  • Right-click to minimize
Other improvements and fixes:
  • When resizing or moving a window, it automatically aligns to other windows
  • Improved double keypress logic to prevent undesired activations
  • Improved swipe detection
  • Added an option to show window size
  • After activation completed, do not bring all the windows of the focused app to the front

It's cool! It works smoothly on 11.6, after you provide it with the Accessibility preference. Interesting concept, a little different to your normal window managers.
