Make windows snap when dragging to the edge of the screen


Typically in Windows 7 and on, when you drag a window to the side of the screen, it will "snap" its size to automatically take up half of the screen. For example, you can snap the logic analyzer to the window to the left, and a datasheet or schematic to the right, and they will each take up half the screen.

Also, dragging the window to the top of the screen automatically maximizes it. As someone used to working with windows like this, I'd like the Salae windows to behave this way too. I'm not sure why they don't but I am assuming it has something to do with the cross-platform aspect of the software.

Please do NOT go to that broken behavior. Automatic snap and sizing are the worst things about windows 7 and above.

Unfortunately these features were lost when we switched to a borderless window. We looked into how to get these features back while still using a borderless window, and it looks like it's possible, but we didn't want to commit to the amount of work it would take. Instead, we would like to switch back to a native window border in the future, which will restore these native features. Unfortunately, I can't give an estimate when that will be done right now, as per this post: blog.saleae.com/software-feature-development-expectations/
