Is there a way to activate this tiling feature in XFCE?

I'm using XFCE and I like how the window snapping works for window tiling. The only thing I'm missing is the feature where you can drag the “connection” spots between apps in any direction to resize and all the other windows will adjust. Now I have to resize each window separately, which takes a lot of time.

I don't want a full tiling window manager because I still enjoy stacking window managers, just with more tiling abilities.

Any recommendations are appreciated.

I'm not sure I understand, but perhaps you want the option "To other windows" checked in Settings > Window Manager > Advanced > Window snapping.

As you see, the Distance can be adjusted to your liking.

Hope it helps!

Perhaps take a look at xpytilehttps://github.com/jaywilkas/xpytile

It offers simultaneous resizing of snapped / docked / side-by-side windows
as well as automatic and manual tiling functions.
