Feature Request - Shortcuts for "on monitor x" at set window size

I used to use Ultramon but switched to DisplayFusion when I upgraded to Win7. It is generally much better, but one thing I miss is the ability to edit shortcuts so that applications always open on a certain monitor at a certain size.

For example (hope you don't mind the link): - http://www.realtimesoft.com/ultramon/tour/shortcuts.asp

This is an excellent idea, but not one I have planned for the near future. Thank you for the suggestion though.

I'd also like to beg you to reconsider this feature. I also switched from Ultramon and am VERY happy with DisplayFusion. It is a much more polished program.

My only annoyance so far has been this issue. I've just gotten used to (for example) Firefox always automatically opening on my 2nd monitor. With DF I open it, then click on the Move to Next Window button.Yes, I know, one extra button click won't kill me, but it's a feature that is very nice.

Just my 2 cents. Otherwise I'm loving my DF experience so far!

As a web designer it was handy to be able to open a browser at a set size (1024 x 768 for example). I really miss this.

Please reconsider!

As another convert to DisplayFusion, I agree that this is a very desireable feature to have/use.

+1 for this feature. Really need it, please, should be easy to implement :mrgreen:

on (window open) {
if monitor3="selected" {
go to (monitor3 & stay there);
}
}

Lol :P. I hate i'm not a programmer type of a person.

Wow, there seems to be quite a demand for this feature. I'll schedule it for inclusion in version 3.2. Thanks for your feedback everyone!

Yes Jon
This is basically the same request I have posted before, not mainly the shortcut links, but the control of applications per monitor. I have been testing the Display Fusion a number of times, and I still need the ability to control windows to open and stay on the monitors I need them on.
Recently I have purchased 3 license sets cause I use multiple computers (as I mentioned before) with multiple monitors, and I need to gain better control of them for the training and work I do on them.
So Please, Add this functionality to your programing.
Thank you Jon.

I can safely say that this feature will be included in version 3.2. I don't have a timeframe for the release yet, as I'm busy working on version 3.1.7 right now.

@Cylon: I didn't realize it was such a popular feature until now. It's been bumped up in priority and will make it into version 3.2.

I too will jump on the bandwagon. I purchased the software based on some user reviews without testing it out, coming from Ultramon. Like the software ton's but being able to assign a program to a display would be great. Currently, DisplayFusion seems to more or less remember the screen for the program I am running. I noticed it stopped working when I turned on 'Windows taskbar shows all windows, DisplayFusion shows relevant windows' option under Taskbar settings.

Looking forward to 3.2.

3.2 is shaping up to be a big release, I'm looking forward to it as well.

I also requested this feature long ago, and I'm happy to see it's finally getting prioritized. I really do miss this feature from Ultramon.

Will you be able to make this apply to fullscreen applications as well? Like games for instance. This was my main usage for this feature anyway.

@Habitats: Games can be tricky to support for any windowing features, but of course I will do my best to support everything.

I don't have a firm release date, but I am aiming for sometime in the next 4-6 months.
