8.14.2 Maximizing Without Overlap

It is possible to maximize a window where it gets only large enough not to overlap with other windows.

Variable: maximize-avoid-avoided

When true (the default), maximized window does not cover avoided windows. (see Avoided Windows)

The “fill” category of maximizing commands provides a convenient way to maximize without overlap to any other windows, except “ignored” ones. (see Ignored Windows)

In addition, they don’t shrink the window even if it is already bigger than the screen size.

Function: maximize-fill-window window #!optional direction
Command: maximize-fill-window window

Maximize both dimensions of window without overlapping other windows.

If defined, direction is a symbol, either vertical or horizontal, and maximization will only occur for that direction.

Function: maximize-fill-window-vertically window
Command: maximize-fill-window-vertically window

Maximize the vertical dimension of window in the screen without overlapping other windows.

Function: maximize-fill-window-horizontally window
Command: maximize-fill-window-horizontally window

Maximize the horizontal dimension of window in the screen without overlapping other windows.

Function: maximize-fill-window-toggle window
Command: maximize-fill-window-toggle window

Toggle the state of window between maximized and unmaximized in the screen without overlapping other windows.

If defined, direction is a symbol, either vertical or horizontal, and maximization will only occur for that direction.

Function: maximize-fill-window-vertically-toggle window
Command: maximize-fill-window-vertically-toggle window

Toggle the state of window between vertically maximized and unmaximized in the screen without overlapping other windows.

Function: maximize-fill-window-horizontally-toggle window
Command: maximize-fill-window-horizontally-toggle window

Toggle the state of window between horizontally maximized and unmaximized in the screen without overlapping other windows.

Variable: maximize-ignore-when-filling

For “filling” maximization, “ignored” windows are ignored when true (the default). (see Ignored Windows)
