<para>Create a "magnetic point" (or curve) in the current window. If an anchor of another window enters in the range of action of this anchor, the 2 anchors will automatically be on the same place, and the windows are "sticked". Each anchor has a priority (<link linkend="anchorpriority">priority</link> attribute), and the anchor with the highest priority is the winner, which means that when moving its window all the other anchored windows will move too. To break the effect of 2 anchored windows, you need to move the window whose anchor has the lower priority.</para>

<title>xkeepratio</title>
<para>When set to true, the behaviour of the horizontal resizing is changed.
