#3598 in-progress enhancement

Grid-based file placement in Tracker's icon views

Tracker's current icon placement appears to be based on view coordinates. I would like to try grid based placement which scales up/down with your chosen icon size.

This does not necessarily imply grid-only placement or even snap-to-grid placement. Grid coordinates could be stored as a pair of double - as opposed to integer values - offering placement steps between the grid coordinates.

Milestone: R1Unscheduled

Moving Tracker enhancement tickets out of R1 milestone -- Tracker's source code comes from BeOS R5, so it already has all the features it did on R5.

This was discussed again today on IRC and is desired by some. Since everybody does not want a grid layout for icon placement, why can't it be made an optional setting in Tracker preferences? We already do this for Tracker navigator. Some people prefer the messy, random, overlapping window placement, while others prefer the clean, single window navigation. We could have a further sub-option for horizontal or vertical icon placement.
