10.5: Retain positions when moving windows in Spaces
Authored by: wfolta on Apr 17, '09 01:46:05PM

You don't need to hold any key down to move a window to another space in the same onscreen location. Just click-n-hold on the window and use the keyboard shortcut to move to the other Space. Not sure what the CMD key has to do with anything. (Except perhaps it allows you to move a background window without selecting it, which doesn't seem to be an advantage here.)

Did you actually read the hint? Holding down the command key allows you to move a window to a new space keeping it in the same location on the screen as it was in the prior space. This is quite helpful if you want to move your Xcode windows to a different space without having to position them all over again.

Wfolta is right: click and hold the window top bar, press your Switch Spaces keyboard shortcut and the window you're "holding" will move with you.

Hey! This is even better. And faster. Little hints but useful indeed.
