I usually use my keyboard for most things rather than my mouse and one feature I use on Windows 7 and 8.1 is the Aero Snap feature. Is it possible to add this feature into MotionBox?

That's something I would like to add. I thought the Qt framework would handle it for me. That's not the case on 4.8. If someone wants to help on that part I'm interested in contributions.

So, I made progress on "Aero Snapping".

Found these useful resources:
- https://github.com/deimos1877/BorderlessWindow.
- https://github.com/ianbannerman/TrueFramelessWindow.

Looking forward to implement a native window in MotionBox quite soon.

Greetings Ginger Bill,

As of today, MotionBox has a native window on Windows.
At least that's the case on the GitHub repository. It will appear on the 1.1.3.

It was quite painful to implement with Qt. It took me several days.

MotionBox also uses a specific window layout, especially for the Mini Mode.
That was a challenge to make it play along with snapping.

The code is here: https://github.com/omega-gg/Sky/b...rc/graphicsview/WAbstractView.cpp.

Beautiful day to you.
