Tiling shortcuts

Hello,

the latest Pharo 7 includes new window tiling shortcuts that should help
you to manage windows position and size without the need of using a mouse.

In this description, the key ⌘ has equivalent in Ctrl on Linux and Windows.
I need to notice that some nicer key combinations would be chosen if the VM
support of key modifiers would be proper on all platforms but that is a
different story…

Windows tiling
————————

⌘+Shift+W, A – move the window to the left half of the screen.
⌘+Shift+W, D – right half
⌘+Shift+W, W – top half
⌘+Shift+W, X – bottom half

⌘+Shift+W, Q – move the window to the top left quadrant of the screen
⌘+Shift+W E – top right quadrant
⌘+Shift+W, Z – bottom left quadrant
⌘+Shift+W, C – bottom right quadrant

⌘+Shift+W, S – maximize the window
⌘+Shift+W, Shift+S – minimize the window

⌘+Shift+W, R – centre the window on the screen with a default extent

Windows moving
————————

⌘+Shift+W, ← – move the window left by half of its width
⌘+Shift+W, → – move the window right by half of its width
⌘+Shift+W, ↑ – move the window up by half of its height
⌘+Shift+W, ↓ – move the window down by half of its height

Windows resizing
————————

⌘+Shift+W, hold ⌘+Shift and press:
A, A – move left window edge left (by half of the window size)
A, S – move left window edge right (by half of the window size)
W, W – move top edge up
W, S – move top edge down
D, D – move right edge right
D, S – move right edge left
X, X – move bottom edge down
X, S – move bottom edge up

Cheers,
