Windows Snap Win7 style

Well 3.1.5 is turning out to be a big giant thing, each day with more thing cram into the change log. Anyway not a top priority, but you know how win 7, when you drag the windows to the side, it re-size itself to half of the screen. This works great, but it doesn't work at the border between the two monitor.
DF has the snap function, and it detects when a windows is near the center between the two screen, I was just wondering could this function be adapt to make window automatically re-size when a window is drag to the border between the two screen?

I know it is kinda confusing to explain, but I hope you know what I am talking about.

I do understand what you're talking about, and it is a cool feature. However, DisplayFusion can already do this using the HotKeys or the TitleBar Buttons. If you need some help setting this up just let me know and I can give you a hand. Thanks!

Thank you I didn't even know those option existed. However, if you could please consider the dragging style of windows 7 in your future release, I feel that it is much more natural than the button. But man great work!
By the way: a minor bug, the button doesn't work when the window is in a maximized state.

Thanks - I'll consider adding it to a future release. That bug should be fixed in the latest public beta version:

you can also use the windows hotkey:
maximize: win+↑
"half-maximize" on the right side of the screen: win+→
note: if the windows is already half maximized it will move to the next display

"half-maximize" on the left side of the screen: win+←

but one thing is strange:
if you have your second display on the right side and set the displayfuision taskbar to the left of the second display, so that it divides your desktop, then your request already works on the second monitor ;-)
