I have a workflow with a few "L " prefixed commands. I use Divvy for most on-the-fly stuff, but a mass resize is often needed, particularly when switching from laptop to external monitor.

Things to consider:

  1. The above script is the layout I use most. It loops through all instances of an application when there are multiple windows open. I couldn't ever get percentages working, so this is pretty specific to a 27" Cinema Display.
  2. Photoshop is a non-cocoa window, it'll go rogue. The best way to deal with it is to click the green (+) button in the top right of its window - this makes Photoshop fill the screen (in a way that is actually unlike most apps reaction to that button!)
  3. I suspect something about this workflow breaks iTerm panes back into tabs - not consistently though. I've been learning tmux as a result.
