A. Setup Menu for Quick Tile commands
If you don't know how to edit menu setup, read this TUTORIAL before you proceed further...
1. First, open standard_menu (1).ini with text editor.
(Renamed standard_menu (1).ini to something else to prevent Opera from overwrite it)
2. Next, search for [Windows Item Popup Menu] section & add this line under it:
Submenu, Quick Tile, Custom Tile Menu
3. Then, create a new section with this code:
[Custom Tile Menu] Item, "Tile Vertical +"=Enter fullscreen & Focus panel, "windows" & Minimize all & Maximize page & View hotlist & Delay, 1 & Tile vertically Item, "Tile Horizontal +"=Enter fullscreen & Focus panel, "windows" & Minimize all & Maximize page & View hotlist & Delay, 1 & Tile horizontally --------------------1 Item, "Tile Vertical"=Focus panel, "windows",,,"Tile vertically" & Minimize all & Maximize page & View hotlist & Delay, 1 & Tile vertically Item, "Tile Horizontal"=Focus panel, "windows",,,"Tile vertically" & Minimize all & Maximize page & View hotlist & Delay, 1 & Tile horizontally
4. You may reorder the commands in the list to suit your personal preferences. Remember to SAVE the document when you're done.
5. Finally, fire-up Opera & select the newly modified menu setup in Opera to apply the changes you just made. Now, you should be able to access Quick Tile Menu from Context menu.
B. Buttons/Shortcuts for Quick Tile Menu
After setup [Custom Tile Menu], you can summon it with buttons or shortcuts.
You should place the button in the Windows Panel for easy access.
Button A1:Quick Tile
Single-click for Quick Tile commands; Press & hold to maximize all pages
Button A2:Quick Tile
Click icon for Quick Tile commands; Click arrow for Arrange commands
Syntax for Quick Tile Menu
Show popup menu, "Custom Tile Menu"
These are standalone buttons which doesn't require you to setup Quick Tile Menu.
You can simply drag 'em into Windows panel to use Quick Tile commands directly.
Button B1: Tile Vertical/Horizontal +
Single-click to fully tile vertical; Press & hold to fully tile horizontal
Button B2: Tile Vertical/Horizontal +
Click icon to fully tile vertical; Click arrow to fully tile horizontal
Button C1: Tile Vertical/Horizontal
Single-click to tile vertical; Press & hold to tile horizontal
Button C2: Tile Vertical/Horizontal
Click icon to tile vertical; Click arrow to tile horizontal
C. How It works?
Simply select some pages in the Windows Panel, then execute any Quick Tile command to tile selected pages. Please note that Opera only able to tile pages WITHIN A SAME active window, in other words you can't tile pages from different or inactive windows. Also, commands with a "+" at the end will tile selected pages in Full-screen mode, allow you to view multiple pages in maximum display area. Lastly, Mac version of Opera can't tile pages, because Apple can't do MDI, yet...
