Description Ken Deeter 2004-10-19 20:19:33 UTC
Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.3.0)
Installed from:    Gentoo Packages

I want to have konsole windows maximized vertically all the time. Dragging them around should always leave them vertically maximized, and I would expect that dragging the window up and down should have no effect (you should only be able to move left and right, because it is maximized.

Also, When I move from one xinerama screen to the other, the window height should change to take up the full vertical space on the new screen. I have two screens, one with a kicker bar, and the other with nothing. It would be nice if when I move the window over to the second screen, the vertical height would adapt automatically to fill the height, and shrink automatically when I bring it back.

this rule is still broken in current master (4.8)
Comment 2 Thomas Lübking 2011-12-10 12:52:05 UTC
It's not about the rule - onedimensionally windows could be freely moved around ever.
This would likely also be covered by an approach always allowing to move/resize all maximized windows, but enforce higher screen snapzones for them (so you can move such client away from the bounding borders, but it's hard(er) to do)

FIXED-IN: 4.11

- The setting is ignored, the decoration always gets a "true" for it
- moving a maximized window requires breaking a "strong" snap (1/16 of screen height - unless you use quick maximization)
- all snapping is done towards the client, not the frame
- QuickTileMode is exported to the decoration (just as the maximizeMode) so that it can fix the bordersize alongside that.
