When I use my Mac, I like have a standard windows organization to do my Work:

  • I put 4 consoles opened side by side on console 1
  • I put Safari in other
  • Mail and iCal in another
  • TextMate on other etc

And depending on the work I do, I'd like to have different window configuration. And when I have a external monitor connected, I need another configuration.

Is there any tool to make this? What is the best way to do it?

AppleScript would probably help, although it would be different depending on your exact needs. – Benjamin Dobson Sep 24 '09 at 15:36
I did not look around much for a tool, I just wrote my own AppleScript program to reposition some of my windows for when I connect an external monitor. If you are familiar with AppleScript, look into position of window … of application process … in System Events. – Chris Johnsen Oct 23 '09 at 21:42

Haven't tried it but there is Layout V1.0:

Don't know if it is Spaces and/or multi-monitor aware though...

breeze has global and application window states. the states can be triggered using they keyboard and are resolution independent. pair this with sizeup and windowflow and you'll be set.

Divvy is another fine window management solution.
