    gnome flashback compiz: window tiling and simultaneous resize

    Hello,

    with the advent of gnome 3.36 there are many new features included and updated. One of them is tiling, which places window applications side by side on screen.

    The same thing can happen with compiz window manager and gnome flashback. The thing is that after the windows are snapped (or tiled) they cannot change size simultaneously: while increasing the size of the one to decrease at the same proportion the other. Maximumize is very close, yet it requires to change the size of the one application first, after that select the other and then change its size.

    Searching a little bit I was able to find a tiling feature in the old compiz versions as experimental feature, yet in the latest ones such an option does not seem to exist. Does anyone have any idea if this simultaneous change of window size, after having placed them on grid, is possible?

    Regards!

    Hello,

    I do not think that simultaneous resize of windows is available in compiz right now. What it can be done, close to that, is to use maximumize and: while decreasing the one side first, to select the other, and then press super+M and it will close the gap right away.
    The options enabled under maximumize are all enabled, but the overlapping windows.

    The thing is that placing windows side by side, some of them do not allow to change their size using the mouse (e.g. terminals).

    Also, in gnome-shell ubuntu, someone can resize the window size, prior of placing any other. If a new window is placed to its side, then it will take the remaining space, and simultaneous change of size can take place after that.

    Regards!
