Multi-display support

Rectangle is a great and UX friendly window manager, but according to user reviews, if you have more than one display you start having problems.

For example, the size of the second screen is calculated incorrectly and the windows are moved and positioned incorrectly.

SMBAct supports a multi-display environment with additional features, e.g:

  • Hide all windows only on active display or on all screens
  • Open Switcher Window on display where is mouse pointer at this moment
  • Using Switcher Window activate any window on the active or main display
  • Save window position after moving between displays
