Keep fixed window positions in Spaces
Authored by: macavenger on Sep 07, '10 08:18:53AM

While the ability to combine spaces and exposť is a good hint in it's own right, and this is certainly an interesting application of that ability, if all you are going for is keeping the same window position when moving between spaces, just hold down the shift key while dragging the window. That's exactly what it is designed for :-)

Keep fixed window positions in Spaces

Thanks! Great addition to the hint. That's perfect for me, because I didn't want to use the F9 Exposť view -- I keep way too many open windows for that -- but shift-dragging a window to another space in Spaces does exactly what I want.

I wish I could set is as default, so that I wouldn't have to hold down the shift button. Anyone know how to set that, if it's even possible?
