Almost one month ago we presented New plugins. One of them was Swap plugin. Let me explain it better now:


We were missing a plugin that could just exchange properties. Sometimes you just need to minimize a window and “unminimize” other. To do it, you would need to perform 2 or more clicks. So, we created Swap! 🙂


It allows you to swap the geometry of two windows. Basically we changed Static Switcher plugin to swap active window with another window.

Here’s a video to show what Swap can do:

P.S.: Forró is the genre of the music. Forró is a kind of Northeastern Brazilian music.

    What a brilliant plugin.. No animations whilst the swap takes place though, I notice? Is this something that might happen in the future? Perhaps the windows jump behind eachother or twist around to swap places, something like that..

    Definitely needs an animation so that you can see what’s happening.
