tiling window manager - addressing one of Ninja's shortcomings

I bought this application a few weeks ago and i found it really great to deal with one of the shortcomings Ninja suffers:

Try it, you'll like it if you work on a Laptop and need to switch between Ninja and other applications.

It's called Mosaico and can be found here:
Home - Soulid Studio

Just out of curiosity, have you used this with a java window such as BookMap? Sometimes the Java windows can be a little tricky to manipulate....

Thanks!

You can automatically tile Ninja charts just using Windows built-in tiling feature.

Not if your on a multiple monitor set up. Try to tile on a monitor that has a monitor on the left and right of it... Can't do it with a mouse. If there is a hotkey for this, let me know. Otherwise, nope. Also, java windows such as BookMap won't work either with the windows tile feature.

I think most apps have a tiling option but the problem is in the way Ninja deals with multiple windows (charts). Each chart is an independent object. Say you have 3 charts opened (Ninja), another application plus your browser. If you bring your browser to the front and want to return to Ninja, you'll need to click 3 times to bring these charts on top. Using Mosaico you just need to use a short cut to put any arrangement of windows to the front. Not only that but you can tile multiple windows from different apps and bring them to the front using a short cut. If you try it you'll quickly see what i mean.

Does Ninja 8 provide this feature? I would love to have the ability to have charts arranged that you can tab through them. Even the FXCM Marketscope has this.
