Trillian (the IM client), has a very cool option that sizes windows when content is added either upwards or downwards:
- Upwards: in this case if/when new content is added in a window bottom part of a window stays in place and upper is being size up (=window goes up)
- Downwards: here upper part of a window stays fixed and lower part of it is being sized down (=window goes down)
It's quite useful. For instance, in my case all my Rainlendar windows are positioned at the bottom of the screen, right above the panel. I want them to stay fixed like this. Here's how it looks:
However, when information is added into the Events window, it expands downwards: upper part of the window stays fixed (in place), and bottom part moves down to accommodate new information. When this happens, Events window "pushes down" the Week View window therefore moving it downwards from its place (in this case it goes below the panel/below the screen). So every time I have to manually
move Events window higher, and put Week View back in its place to restore the layour. You see the problem here?
If Rainlendar had an option to size windows upwards, then this layout of mine would work perfectly well, because with any new information windows would "grow" only upwards and thus all windows stayed in place (=fixed to the bottom). Basically this option is necessary for layouts that situated on the bottom edges of a screen where there is little or no place below them (eg. in a layout fixed at the top of the screen all that is not an issue ofc).
I think adding that would be very, very useful!
Thanks in advance in any case!
P.S. This is how the option's called in the latest Trillian:
