Arrange(1)		 AfterStep X11 window manager		    Arrange(1)

NAME
       Arrange - AfterStep module for arranging	windows	in a tiling or cascad-
       ing order

CONFIGURATION OPTIONS
DESCRIPTION
       Arrange was developed to	replace	Tile and Cascade which were present in
       AfterStep  1.8  and  stopped working with the introduction of AfterStep
       2.0. Like Tile and Cascade Arrange can be used to tile or cascade  win-
       dows subject to certain constraints.

       By default Arrange will cascade windows located on the current screen.

OPTIONS
       -a

	      Causes all window	styles to be affected, even ones with the Win-
	      dowListSkip style.

       -alldesks

	      Causes windows on	all desks to be	effected.

       -desk

	      Causes all windows on the	desk to	be  cascaded  instead  of  the
	      current screen only.

       -H

	      Causes  windows  to be tiled horizontaly.	This will only have an
	      effect if	-tile is passed.

       -incx arg

	      Specifies	a horizontal increment which is	successively added  to
	      arranged	windows. arg is	a percentage of	screen width, or pixel
	      value if a p is suffixed.	Default	is 20p.

       -incy arg

	      Specifies	a vertical increment which is  successively  added  to
	      arranged windows.	arg is a percentage of screen height, or pixel
	      value if a p is suffixed.	Default	is 20p.

       -m

	      Causes maximized windows to also be affected (implied by -all).

       -mn arg

	      Tiles up to arg windows in tile direction. If more  windows  ex-
	      ist,  a new direction row	or column is created (in effect, a ma-
	      trix is created).

       -noraise

	      Inhibits window raising, leaving the depth ordering intact.

       -nostretch

	      Inhibits window expansion	when using the	-resize	 option.  Win-
	      dows  will  only	shrink to fit the maximal width	and height (if
	      given).

       -pattern	arg

	      Only arrange windows matching the	supplied pattern.

       -r

	      Reverses the window sequence.

       -resize

	      Forces all windows to resize to the constrained width and	height
	      (if given).

       -s

	      Causes sticky windows to also be affected	(implied by -all).

       -t

	      Causes transient windows to also be affected (implied by -all).

       -tile

	      Causes windows to	be tiled not cascaded.

       -u

	      Causes untitled windows to also be affected (implied by -all).

INVOCATION
       Arrange	can be invoked from the	autoexec file or by binding the	action
       "Module Arrange [args]" to a key-stroke in a feel file.

CONFIGURATION OPTIONS
       Command-line arguments passed to	Arrange	are described in  the  OPTIONS
       section.

       Up  to  four  numbers  can  be  placed on the command line that are not
       switches. The first pair	specify	an x and y offset to start  the	 first
       window  (default	 is 0, 0). The second pair specify an absolute coordi-
       nate reference denoting the lower right bounding	box for	tiling.	If any
       number  is  suffixed  with the letter p,	then it	is taken to be a pixel
       value, otherwise	it is interpreted as a screen  percentage.  Specifying
       zero for	any parameter is equivalent to not specifying it.

       This  invocation	 will  horizontally  tile  windows with	a bounding box
       which starts at 10 by 10	percent	into and down the screen and  ends  at
       90 by 90	percent	into and down the screen.

       Arrange 10 10 90	90 -tile -H

       It  is probably not a good idea to delete windows while windows are be-
       ing arranged.
