Unless I have missed it in the options in a dual monitor setup I can use windows 7 snap to dock a window to half of a monitor easily by dragging it to the left or right side.

However I can only dock to the left side of the left monitor or the right side of the right monitor.

I can't dock to the right side of the left monitor or vice versa as it is the cross over area between the two monitors. The mouse just goes straight through with no snap options.

Could a snap feature be added for this? Possibly in combination with this request to stop the easy run over from one monitor to the other when trying to use snap.

There were lots of left and rights in the paragraphs above if you need clarification of what I mean I will sort a screen shot or two.

Configuration:

Windows 7 x64
AMM v 2.3
Outlook 2010

If I click on Move to Monitor 2 Outlook will not move to monitor 2. I don't have this issue with other applications including an RDP session.

Thank you, Peter!

I added your wish to our list of future changes.

Dear Kevin,

Do you have the problem all time? I was able to reproduce the problem only once (after installation of Office 2010)

It does not work for me.  Is there some configuration issue I'm missing?

Dear Peter,

We added the ability to disable Win7 AeroSnap function and use our AeroSnap to apply it between monitors.

You are welcome to test it in Actual Window Manager 6.3 beta 1

For the title bar buttons is it possible that you guys could add buttons for snapping it to the right or left side of the current monitor? I'm aware of the align button, but instead of maintaining the size of the window, add two buttons for adjusting the window to take up 50% of the monitor on the right or left, as if you had hit the window key + the right arrow or left arrow in standard aero snap. Hope this makes sense, and I figured this fit into the original topic too much to start a separate thread. ^^

Arty,

We'll think about the buttons.

But now you can use the hotkeys for the snap functionality:
  • Snap to right half  - Win+Right
  • Snap to left half - Win+Left

Else for quick window alignment you can use Win+<numpad keys>.

All hotkeys are set by default. You always can change it here

I'm aware of all of the approaches I could take with it, just figured I'd make the suggestion since it's pretty nice to have everything in the same spot in plain view, y'know? ^^ Anyway, thanks for taking the idea into consideration.
