IconSnap is a command line utility written by Krister Jansson, the program snaps Workbench icons to a virtual grid. Have you ever felt limited by Workbench’s ability to layout the icons? This util aids you in your struggles by allowing you to roughly position your icons in Workbench any way you want, and then run this util to snap your Icons to a given grid. Workbench is the graphical file manager of AmigaOS developed by Commodore International for their Amiga line of computers. Workbench provides the user with a graphical interface to work with file systems and launch applications. It uses a workbench metaphor (in place of the more common desktop metaphor) for representing file system organisation. Confusingly, “Workbench” was also the name originally given to the entire Amiga operating system up until version 3.1. From release 3.5 the operating system was renamed “AmigaOS” and subsequently “Workbench” refers to the native file manager only.
