I personally use divvy with various shortcuts for resizing a window to a particular area on my desktop (i.e. shift + cmd + space to bring up divvy and then the left arrow to resize the current window to the left half of my display).
Hope this helps...

Thanks Andrew! This is very helpful. It doesn't seem to work with InDesign and the palettes still float, but it will be helpful with other applications.
Thanks for these suggestions .

I don't have InDesign, but a lot of recent Adobe applications (CS4 and later I think) have an "application frame" mode. It makes the application behave in a more Microsoft Windows like way, where the entire application including the palettes are held within one window. You should then be able to make the window smaller and position it where you want.
Look in the Window menu for an Application Frame option, its a toggle so if you don't like it select it again to revert back.

Thanks Andrew. That mode locks in the tool palette and top ribbon but leaves the others floating on the right. Divvy will not resize any Adobe applications windows (except Acrobat) for some reason. It will just snap them to a particular corner, but not resize.

Did you try docking the floating toolbars into the application frame once you had enabled it?
I hadn't noticed that divvy didn't work with Adobe apps, but you're right it doesn't work with either Photoshop or Premiere.

Thanks Andrew. It took some time but I finally figured out how to do that. That really tidies up my work space. Thanks so much.
