Description:

This is a small modification to the present windows effect that add a new layout mode
which tries to keep the windows a little more organized.

It group windows from the same application and tries to prevent the windows from changing position every time the effect is activated so its easier to locate the window you want.

It has been made and tested with KDE 4.8.0, i don't know if it works with other versions.

It can be installed as a standalone effect, but there is also a patch in the archive which can be applied to the standard present windows effect.

Yes, it can be activated with the corner, but i'm not sure how to make it show up in the screen edge configuration dialog yet.

As a temporary workaround you can edit ~/.kde/share/config/kwinrc
Look for:
[Effect-PresentWindowsMod]
and add:
BorderActivate=7

The numbers are:
1 = TopRight
3 = BottomRight
5 = BottomRight
7 = TopLeft


You will have to logout and login or restart kwin.
