In a previous article, I gave you all sort of an introduction to using Afloat. This article will be more detailed and will focus on the numerous aspects of this amazing app available for MAC users.
How Does Afloat Help in Working with Several Windows?
You don’t need to flip through the several open windows, using Afloat; you can simply put the source window above others. While using Afloat, go to the source window and then hit this: “Command + Control + A”. This will make the window always floating above. If you wish the window to be transparent, you can use this: “Control + Command + 1″.
The transparency level can be controlled using this: “Command + Control + Page Up/Down”. You can even use “Command + Control + Two finger scroll on the multi touch trackpad”. If you wish the window to get back to non-transparent state, use this: “Command + Control + 0″.
That’s not all! There’s a command to overlay as well: from Window –> Adjust Effect menu or Command + Control + F.
If the window you need is located in a different space from the window you are using currently, you can configure it through Afloat options as well. Hence, the tool eliminates the need of turning off spaces or moving the required window around Spaces.
You can quickly resize a window, by hitting this: Command + Control key, when you click & drag the right mouse button anywhere within the window. A quick drag can be performed using Command + Control and the left mouse button as well.
If you wish to know the location of a file, on which you are working on currently, Afloat can help even with that. Just hit this: “Command + Control + Up arrow”.
Afloat works because it has hosts of features that you’ll love to have in an app. I love it and I’ll like to hear what the other users have to say as well.
