How much time do you spend rearranging dialogs? Would it help to have Lightwave-esque to resize the dialogs?

Resize dialogs with CTRL + mouse
1 move mouse to empty space in dialog
2 hold CTRL key
3 hold mouse button
4 drag mouse
5 nearest edges will move, influenced by the position of the mouse, dialog window edges furthest from the mouse will not move as much (if at all)

Move dialogs with mouse
1 move mouse to empty space in dialog
2 hold mouse button
3 drag mouse
4 whole window will move
- OR, limit to when the SHIFT + mouse are held, if it turns out there's too much "accidental" movement

Empty space like empty area of a list - anywhere the mouse doesn't do anything already.

I find it a hassle to find the edges of windows with the mouse and drag - it would be easier for me to simply resize with these shortcuts.

(Q: Is there a Windows / Mac app to do this already, using mouse dragging?)
