Limit cascading to current monitor

Hello,
Is there a feature I could use within DisplayFusion that would prevent cascading to open windows were the right border of the newly opened window is no more on my current monitor but appears on my N+1 monitor?

To simulate the problem, on your left monitor open a wide windows explorer window and press CTRL+N multiple times.
After some iterations the close button is no more on your left monitor but on the monitor next to it, I would like the new windows to be "blocked" by the right side of the left monitor.

By blocked, do you mean that once it hits that point, you don't want it to be able to open any more new windows? e.g. You press Ctrl + N, the window is partially on the second screen, so DisplayFusion closes it?

Or do you want DisplayFusion to just move it back inside the work area?

The second proposition is what i would expect : the cascading would continue only vertically
rather than a classical cascading with an vertical ans horizontal offset.

Ok, there isn't currently a feature that could do that, no. If it's something we're able to add in a future version, we'll definitely let you know.

Thanks!

Hello Keith,
I made a Scripted Function for that, I call it when a Windows Explorer window opens.
For info I run Win7 not Win10, don't know if it makes a difference in Epxplorer windows behavior

Code
