aerosnap keybind on dual monitors

I know the aerosnap feature has been discussed many times, but all the threads I can find either use a mouse setup to get snap on 2 screens (OpenSnap), or use the aerosnap keybind that only works on the primary monitor

I use a dual monitor setup and was wondering if anyone has found a way to make the aerosnap keybind work on more than one monitor?
(or any convenient customizable keybind setup anyone has come up with, allowing quartering or thirds or something)

the current W+arrowkey is hit or miss for usefulness, and the W+A+arrowkey on;y works on the primary monitor


Thanks

Re: aerosnap keybind on dual monitors

in case any are wondering, I found that this (found online) works well with a dual monitor setup, I don't know why it does and the built in one doesn't, but replace the section on default cb-aerosnap with this

<keybind key="W-A-Left">
  <action name="UnmaximizeFull"/>
  <action name="MaximizeVert"/>
  <action name="MoveResizeTo">
    <width>50%</width>
  </action>
  <action name="MoveToEdgeWest"/>
</keybind>
<keybind key="W-A-Right">
  <action name="UnmaximizeFull"/>
  <action name="MaximizeVert"/>
  <action name="MoveResizeTo">
    <width>50%</width>
  </action>
  <action name="MoveToEdgeEast"/>
</keybind>
