Feature request: GRIDS!

Since the other eyefinity thread is marked as completed I figured I'd post a new thread for this...

From the other post:

*Another vote to implement more features that are eyefinity-aware.*

I purchased a license this morning in hopes of someday being able to utilize eyefinity mode (multiple monitors as 1, e.g. 5760x1200 resolution) with displayfusion

I think you may be able to add some features more easily than others... currently you have a way to send a program to another monitor (not sure why you can't click a button to send it to a specific monitor, only the "next" monitor).

What I propose is a feature similar to ati's hydravision software (horrible and discontinued, i think) where you have the ability to create a user-defined grid (which is invisible at run time except when snapping windows) that you can snap windows into based upon a hotkey being held down at the time you click the maximize button, or when youre dragging a window.

As an example..
If I hold down [shift] and click Maximize, the window will span across all 3 monitors using the full resolution regardless of pre-defined grids.
If I hold down [alt] and click Maximize, the window will snap to the closest grid the window is next to, and expand or contract to that grid's specified size
If I hold down [ctrl] and click Maximize, the window will snap to the largest grid the window is closest to (on a single monitor) and expand or contract to that grid's size

This feature would be applicable to all users regardless of system configuration because the grids are user-defined.

Is this feasible?

This is an interesting idea, and one that I intend to investigate further. I love the idea of grids, I just need to find a good way to work it into DisplayFusion's UI. :)
