My favorite DF features and tips - what are yours?

DF is one of the programs that has so many cool features it really requires some digging into, to take full advantage of it. My favorite feature is Monitor Profiles which I use at all times. They are so incredible they are stopping me from moving to Apple even though I would like to, because nothing similar can be done with any Apple multimonitor utilities.

A few of my other favorite features:
- Custom commands across the title bar.
- Keyboard shortcuts for custom commands. These take a little while to set up, but man once you do it makes everything so fast! I can hit Ctrl/1,2,3 etc. to instantly move any window across one of 10 virtual monitors that are part of my monitor profiles. And Ctrl/M to maximize across a monitor.
- A big tip. Even though DF warns you of possible issues if you overlap monitors on monitor profiles, in usage I have found none. So for instance I have 3 possible window positions across the top of my monitor left, center, and right. Center overlaps half of left and right. So I can have left and right active, or middle active if I want a single perfectly centered window.

I just use keyboard shortcuts to instantly move them around, so overlapping causes 0 issues. There are a few tricks to getting the taskbar icons to work correctly, so if anyone has any interest I will elaborate.

I've looked at Window profiles but I do not see any use in my application. So other than that, what other super cool things do you folks do with your setups?
