[[subtle]] is a +manual+ tiling window manager with a rather uncommon approach of tiling: Per default there is no typical layout enforcement, windows are placed on a position ([[gravity]]) in a custom grid. The user can change the [[gravity]] of each window either directly per [[grabs]] or with rules defined by [[tagging|tags]] in the [[config]].

Windows are visible on views - the virtual desktops in [[subtle]] - that have at least one [[tagging|tag]] in common.
