Have been using taekwindow for several days now. Overall I love it, but noticed that in Photoshop the Alt + click actions are pretty primary. For example, removing part of a selection with the marquee tool.

I think a nice compromise would be if takewindow only used left Alt for window dragging, then if a user finds themselves in a tool which requires Alt dragging they can still use the right Alt key.

    Sounds like an excellent idea. I'd been having trouble with Photoshop as well :) As soon as I've finished the configuration tool I'll look into this.

    Alt+LClick is the block selection tool in a lot of text editors.
    Win+LClick or configurable keys would be a nice feature.

    Using the new configuration tool, Taekwindow can be restricted to use only left or right Alt.
