Move and Resize windows

Recently, a Keyboard Maestro user asked if Keyboard Maestro could allow windows to be moved around like Windows allows when you press a key combination.

Keyboard Maestro has actions to move and resize windows, so it is an easy task to create a macro group activated by a hot key which then enables its macros, triggered by arrow keys to move the front window around.

Not wanting to leave this as an exercise to the reader, I created a macro group for the Macro Library, so that pressing control-W allows you to move and resize windows - arrow keys nudge by a single pixel, option-arrow keys by 10, shift arrow keys resize and option-shift arrow keys resize by 10.

You can download it from the Macro Library.
