View maximized Cover Flow window via AppleScript
Authored by: Karl Ottenstein on May 17, '08 08:20:01PM

The script on the Apple page, and the ones here, don't work with an even number of monitors, since the main coverflow image is then centered in the crack between monitors.

A quick and dirty, but not really satisfactory fix is to use:

set bounds to {0, 44, (item 3 of desktop_bounds) / 2, item 4 of desktop_bounds}

in Jon's script if you have two monitors. But, this doesn't work if the finder window is on the second monitor when you run the script - the maximized window will appear on the first and when you restore, you'll be back on the 2nd.

So, really need to determine monitor count, and the monitor on which the finder window resides and do the math accordingly. More than I have time for at the moment...

Thanks for the tip/script though!

Karl
