That is why I really love the little utility named "Cinch": it gives you the power to make a window fill the whole screen when you try your best to drag it to the top edge; moreover, you can do the similar things to the right and left directions. You know what I am talking about, right? Some say "Cinch Brings Windows 7's Aero Snap to the Mac", I don't know, I haven't used Windows 7 that much yet.
But this is not what I am gonna talk about here. My problem is after I had used Cinch for a while, and one day, it started not to work properly: when I try to drag windows to the top edge, the window part would have a piece of shadow as well as the Cinch's dotted box. What is worse is, the windows won't restore to their original size after I drag them back, which used to be the most lovely part I think of Cinch.
This drove me crazy. First, I thought it was because of certain applications I installed recently, so I started to remove them one by one, but as you might know, I did this in vain. I almost give up on this problem.
And it was just yesterday, I suddenly realized that maybe it is because of the BetterTouchTool. Yeah, it is a tool for you to enhance the functions of your TouchPad (if you have it) or Magic Mouse in Mac. Since it has been updating in a high pace, there must be some certain function added which would be the cause of this conflict.
After a simple seeking, ha, I found the exact causing part in BetterTouchTool's preferences: step into the "Predefinedactions" tab, here it is:
just uncheck them all, then the control will be returned to your Cinch.
Now I am playing with my Cinch and feeling that the beautiful world is back. If you are having the same problem, hope this help. :)
