I have a few workflows/focus modes I cycle through during the workday, and each one has its own combination of apps:
- Writing = Ulysses + Safari
- Weekly planning = Calendar + Reminders
- Email = Mail + Reminders
I like to have the primary app open on the left 2/3 of the monitor, and the other app in the right 1/3. Moom does this beautifully, but for one small issue.
I set up my window layouts and keyboard shortcuts on my 27" monitor, and they work great there. But when I am using my MBP without a second monitor and trigger the layout, Moom makes the windows way too big. In other words, they’re still sized for a 27" monitor, not a 16" display.
Same thing happens but in reverse if I set them up on the laptop screen and then trigger them on the second display - the windows are too small and stuck to the lower left corner of the screen.
I can get this to work (sort of) in Keyboard Maestro, except for the 2/3 + 1/3. KM wants to put that 1/3 window either sliding off the far right of the screen, or dead in the middle. It works perfectly if I go with a 50/50 split though.
I’m not sure if I’m missing something in Moom, if there’s a fix for the 1/3 issue in KM, or if I just need to set up different keyboard shortcuts for different displays.
