Bug: Window Tile, Cascade, Stacked Doesn't Work

Both Windows XP and Vista have a nice feature that allow windows to be stacked, tiled, cascaded, and minimized. However, WinSCP seems to not allow Windows to resize the application. To reproduce in version 4.04:

1) CTRL-Click on the WinSCP window in the Windows taskbar to select it.
2) CTRL-Click on at least one more application in the taskbar to select it also.
3) Right click on one of the selected windows.
4) Click one of the auto-arrange options such as "Show Windows Side By Side".

WinSCP seems to ignore the resizing but the other selected app (such as Windows Explorer) will behave as expected. I would love to see this feature work correctly for nicely arranging a local browser (Windows Explorer) and a remote browser (WinSCP) nicely for drag and drop operations.

Thanks,
Jason

You need to have higher resolution for screen.
For me on 1152x864 resolution, cascade, tile vert, tile horz works with no prob on WinXP.

I'm running 1920 x 1200 with Vista on my laptop. At work I'm running at least 1152 x 864 with XP. Neither work. The resolution shouldn't matter anyways...

External Resize Commands Still Do Not Work for Me

I'm still not getting the Windows Cascade/Tile functionality to work even on v4.0.6. I'm running Windows XP, dual monitors at 1280x1024.

If any of the windows are minimized or maximized, it "Restores" them, but then nothing happens to the size or position of the window beyond that.

I will be downloading 4.0.7 and trying shortly.

Re: External Resize Commands Still Do Not Work for Me

Okay. Still does it in 4.0.7, but I've got a better description of the scenario.

When I do the "global" Tile Windows Vertically/Horizontally on all windows, it works just fine.

The scenario I've been doing is where I have two instances of WinSCP open and Windows XP groups the two windows into a single taskbar item. The context-menu item on that grouped taskbar item to Tile Vertically/Horizontally on just the WinSCP windows is the place that does not work. Sorry for the confusion.
