Switch between app windows in multiple Spaces System
I just discovered that you can quickly jump between an application's windows in multiple Spaces by repeatedly pressing its Dock icon. The first click will activate the application, and then each subsequent click will jump to a different Space that contains a window from that application. This works if you don't have the "When switching to an application, switch to a space with open windows for the application" checked in Spaces' settings panel.

[robg adds: When I tested this (it works in both 10.5 and 10.6), it didn't seem to matter whether or not the "When switching to an application..." preference was set or not; it worked with it enabled or disabled.]

What a shame it doesn't cycle through an apps windows within a given space too :(

That's not a duplicate. That describes the functionality of the "When switching to an application, switch to a space with open windows for the application" setting. It doesn't mention the fact that repeatedly clicking on the app icon will cycle through the spaces that have that apps windows in them (if more than one space does).

It's related, but not the same.

It doesn't work if this hint has been applied, as one would expect.
