Feature Request: Doing a "shift" when moving a space in Overview grid


First of all thank you very munch for this app, it’s just perfect!

But, there a behavior that I find very annoying:

When I move a space from the Overview grid, the current behavior is to “permute” the space that I am moving with the one below my cursor.

I would like to know if is it possible to have an option in order to modify this behavior and “shift” all the spaces instead of “permute” (in the same way as Mission control).

Because my english is very poor, I will try with drawings:

Current spaces grid:

1 2 3
4 5 6

Let’s says that I want to move the space 2 between the spaces 5 and 6.
With the current version this is the final result (the spaces 2 and 6 are permuted):

1 6 3
4 5 2

But this is what I want (the spaces 3, 4 and 5 are shifted in the left in order to let the space 2 between spaces 5 and 6):

1 3 4
5 2 6

I hope that my drawings are clear :smiley:

Thank you!


Ooh sorry, just found that this is in the FAQ! I’m an idiot but glad to find that this option exists :smile:
