Maximize Chrome and still see Sidewise?

A Parman 7 years ago updated by Joel Thornton 7 years ago 0

Can Sidewise adjust things so that it is still visible when chrome is maximized (F11)?  Then chrome's tabs are hidden.

Maybe. The trick here would be in the fact that pressing F11 makes the main Chrome window fill the entire space of the screen. If we then overlaid the Sidewise window over that (which is possible), some part of the main Chrome window will be hidden under the Sidewise window.

One possibility is to forcibly modify the F11'd Chrome tab's page content so that it has a "right margin" equal to the width of the Sidewise window. I'm not sure this would work well in all cases though, due to how web page layout works (e.g. CSS absolute positioning issues).
