Bring the old Spaces back to Mavericks
Authored by: cmdawson on Oct 30, '13 04:01:35PM

I've been waiting forever for spaces to act like it now does - for me they finally fixed multiple displays! Not sure why the old behavior would be better?

Bring the old Spaces back to Mavericks
Authored by: calum on Nov 18, '13 09:09:20AM

Well, I for one tried the new way for a couple of weeks, but had to switch back. I generally work with my external monitor above my laptop, which essentially makes for a double-height desktop. And find it much more convenient to have a row of double-height workspaces that I can swipe between (i.e. the old way), than have to swipe the top and bottom halves separately.

And a BIG loss with the new way is that you can no longer drag windows between spaces on the same display, without using Exposť. You can only directly drag them between different displays, now, which is a total pain.

Overall, I just find it a bit weird how they've implemented the new mode. I suppose I expected display-specific spaces to disappear when you disconnected that display, and to re-appear when you re-connected it -- much as per-display backgrounds do now. But instead they persist, so when you disconnect a display from your laptop, you end up with a long row of spaces on your laptop display that you usually have to rearrange again to be useful. But if you start moving windows around at that point, of course, nothing goes back to the right display when you re-connect the external one again.

Just doesn't suit my way of working or thinking at all, I'm afraid.
