Toggle maximization of windows horizontally and vertically

Asked by JW on 2010-11-08

Presently only the maximization has a toggle on it. It would be very handy if the horizontal and vertical maximization also had the ability to toggle. Mapping another key combo to "Restore" seems unnecessary from a practical point of view.

You can use compiz to give key combos to special maximizations, there are guides how to mimick Windows 7's snap feature. You could use that code to assign hotkeys or mouse positions to maximize windows horizontally / vertically etc

Can you help with this problem?
