Comments on: Even Geekier Window Resizing http://www.red-sweater.com/blog/1990/even-geekier-window-resizing Mac & Technology Writings by Daniel Jalkut Sun, 16 Mar 2014 19:39:31 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=3.8.1 By: Marc Respass http://www.red-sweater.com/blog/1990/even-geekier-window-resizing/comment-page-1#comment-216260 Thu, 04 Aug 2011 23:47:18 +0000 http://www.red-sweater.com/blog/?p=1990#comment-216260 This is a cool tip. I accidentally stumbled on another. If you point at a flat edge (doesn’t work at corners) and move the other way, you can drag the window. Point at the right edge and move left or right to resize but move up or down and you drag the window. Once you start, you can move any way you want. Same with top or bottom (start moving sideways).

To those of you who find my typos so offensive as to warrant snarkiness in the tone of your comments, maybe you should find another blog to read. I aim to inform and entertain, by devoting a small fraction of my time to writing articles here. Mistakes will happen. Deal with it, or move along, please.

I seem to recall these modifiers date to MacPaint. Someone correct me if I’m wrong, but I seem to recall using them in SuperPaint in 1989 and I thought even then that they were Mac standards.

Opt makes it resize from center. Shift doesn’t constrain the ratio but instead locks one dimension.

Seems like the wrong choice to me, but it is interesting nonetheless.
