10.5: Retain positions when moving windows in Spaces
Authored by: arcticmac on Apr 17, '09 02:46:16PM

I often find the command-drag not to actually do what I want, because it *does* move all the application's windows. If you think about it, that's what it's doing even with single window apps, it's just that there happens to be only one.

However, I often want to move a window of an app that has multiple windows open, preserving its location, and without moving any others. What I've found works is if you enter spaces, then enter the "all windows" mode of expose. Dragging windows around in this mode does not give them a new position on the new space, so when you exit expose, the windows will be in the same position, just in a new space.

Yes, I do this all the time. It's sure to work too, as opposed to using Command; I have found that the vertical positioning of windows is sometimes not preserved when using this hint
