Effortlessly resize and reposition macOS apps
macOS 10.11 or higher
Mosaic caters for everyone who needs to work with multiple windows, whether your needs are simple or very specific.
Issue 128 | May 2017
Mosaic is now more powerful than ever before, with new features that further empower your workflow.
Everything in it's place
The new Auto Layout extra allows you to assign a Layout to each app, making it quicker and easier than ever before to arrange your windows. Layouts are assigned and applied to apps by dragging and dropping on the Auto Layout extra.
Whats more, the Layout assigned to an app can be different for each connected display allowing even greater flexibility.
Bring the app you are currently working with sharply into focus without the clutter of other windows. Holding SHIFT when applying a Layout tells Mosaic to hide all other apps at the same time, eliminating the distraction of other windows and allowing you to focus on the task in hand.
Create your custom Layouts more efficiently than ever before by specifying your own default grid, so you don't need to customise it for each Layout you create.
Now the multi-display support in Mosaic is easier than ever to use, with popup indicators to confirm display selection, support for multiple displays with the same name and other enhancements.
Mosaic has been meticulously designed to feel like an integrated component of macOS — and not like a standalone app. The result is a seamless and intuitive experience that feels as good to use as it looks.
The Row View can be positioned anywhere on the y-axis of your desktop for optimal positioning.
The Column View can be positioned anywhere on the x-axis of your desktop for optimal positioning.
The Grid View is centrally positioned on your desktop.
The Docked View hangs off the Menu Bar for a beautifully small and discreet view.
Quick Layout allows you to define a custom layout on-the-fly and apply it to the currently active window.
Rather than limit you to a list of simple preset layouts, Mosaic lets you create any layout you like with a powerful suite of layout creation tools. You can simply paint a layout on a grid or achieve absolute control with numerical constraints.
Simple yet extremely flexible.
Basic layouts work by enabling you to divide your screen into a grid and you define a layout by simply painting an area on the grid.Watch the video
The ultimate in precision and power.
When you need a window to be an exact size at a specific location on your desktop, Advanced Layouts give you all the control you need.Watch the video
As there is no limit to the number of layouts you can create in Mosaic, you can find yourself with dozens of layouts — many of which you only need for specific scenarios. With Layout Groups1, you can organise your layouts to suit specific workflows and by switching between them, filter out those you don’t need.Watch the video

If you need to capture the current window as an image, you can easily copy it to the clipboard or save it to your hard disk.
Take the current window and just move it into any of the screen corners or centrally onto a screen edge.
When you find that you don't have the layout you need, use Quick Layout to define one on the spot.
If you've got 2 or more displays attached to your Mac, Mosaic has you covered. Basic Layouts automatically adapt to the resolution of each display so no additional setup is required. However, you can assign any layout to a specific display to suit your needs.
With a Touch Bar enabled MacBook Pro, all your layouts are right at your fingertips. If you are a keyboard junky but have too many layouts to realistically assign keyboard shortcuts to all of them, Touch Bar is exactly what you need.
Activate Touch Bar Mode1 with a single keyboard shortcut. The layout you select is instantly applied to the currently active window.
With the Remote Control docked next to your display, simply tap on any Layout Icon and it is instantly and wirelessly applied to the currently active window on your Mac. It is an incredible way of interacting with Mosaic.
