PowerResizer Keyboard Shortcuts

For some reason the keyboard shortcuts / hotkeys for Federico Bastianello's PowerResizer aren't on the web, only in the "Readme.txt" installed with it. So, as a public service, here they are (for version 0.95):

2.1 - Window Docking Features and Keyboard Shortcuts

 - Move Window + A: dock a window to the left-half of the screen.
 - Move Window + S: dock a window to the right-half of the screen.
 - Move Window + W: dock a window to the top-half of the screen.
 - Move Window + Z: dock a window to the bottom-half of the screen.
 - Move Window + 1: dock a window to the top-left corner of the screen.
 - Move Window + 2: dock a window to the top-right corner of the screen.
 - Move Window + 3: dock a window to the bottom-left corner of the screen.
 - Move Window + 4: dock a window to the bottom-right corner of the screen.
 
When you resize the inner border of those windows you docked to one of the four
corners of the screen or to one of the four screen halves, PowerResizer 
changes the windows' behavior during resize in a way that all docked windows
will follow the new size of their neighboors.
It is possible to mix docked windows in halves of the screen and in corners.

2.2 - Window Moving/Resizing Features and Keyboard Shortcuts

 - Resize Window + CTRL: resize a window mantaining fixed its center point.
 - Resize Window + SHIFT: move a window using its border.
 - Move Window + 5: center a window into the screen (1/16 screen size margin).
 - Move Window + 6: center a window into the screen (1/10 screen size margin).
 - Move Window + 7: center a window into the screen (1/6 screen size margin).
 - Move Window + 8: center a window into the screen (1/4 screen size margin).
 - Move Window + 9: center a window into the screen (1/3 screen size margin).
 - Move Window + 0: maximize a window.
 
2.3 - Screen window reposition Features and Keyboard Shortcuts

 - CTRL + ALT + PAGE UP: Rotate docked windows counter-clockwise.
 - CTRL + ALT + PAGE DOWN: Rotate docked windows clockwise.
 - CTRL + ALT + HOME: Reposition windows.
 
Note: the keyboard shortcuts in that section, are system-wide shortcuts and 
they will work on windows docked on the monitor containing active window.
