Are your icons in Amiga Workbench 3.1 constantly overlapping or not following a proper grid and it is driving you bonkers?
It turns out there are a few easy ways to fix this problem and bring some peace to your OCD mind.
Option 1: Do it yourself
Open up the folder in question and arrange the icons on the screen the way you'd like them to look. Once done, click-drag to select all of the icons. Then, right-click and under the 'Icons' menu at the top select 'Snapshot'.
This will tell your computer to remember their placement the next time you re-open the folder.
Option 2: Let the Amiga do it for you (sort of)
Press the right-Amiga key on the keyboard (the hollowed out 'A' key) + the period key. It will auto-arrange your icons for you on a tight grid. You still need to click-drag a box to select all of the icons, then right-click to select 'Snapshot' from the icons menu. Saves a bit of time if you want to use the Amiga's grid system.
