Window Color Keying - Different Color Border for each Open Window

At the office my workstation has the ability to place a thin color border around each window that is open and not maximized or minimized. This has been quite handy whe working with many Windows Office applications since they all use the same color theme. See attached example. Is there a feature like this with DisplayFusion? If not would it be an up and coming feature?

We don't have any plans to implement this feature at the current time, but the request is on our list, so I've added your vote to it for when we review it again.

I'll be sure to post an update if the status changes

Just wanted to follow-up and let you know that we've implemented this in DisplayFusion 4.1 Beta 8. Just assign a key combination, or a TitleBar Button for the "Highlight Window" Function

I like this feature but it seems a little cumbersome to enable or to use in practice. It doesn't seem to be "sticky" and only seems to be applicable to that window instance, rather than the application.
Would it be possible to include one or more automatic modes, where say once set all Windows got different colors automatically or maybe semi-automatic where you could assign an application to a specific color so that all windows for the app go the same color?

Anyway, just a thought

Thanks for implementing this feature request.

I agree with PGomersall that the ability to have the windows automatically appear with different color borders as a setting and not require manually activating it for a window is my past experience and the most practical.

Awesome, thanks for the great feedback on the feature guys! We like your suggestions, but we'll need to investigate them some more to figure out the best way to implement them. I don't think we'll be able to get them into the final release of 4.1, but we'll hopefully be able to start implementing them in the 4.1.1 beta versions.

Thanks again!
