Spaces and multiple windows from the same app
Authored by: water451 on Nov 07, '07 10:58:27PM

This drives me insane, because Cmd-tabbing to various applications will basically randomly transition me to a window, and thereby force a Spaces transition to the Space wherein the window lies... which prevents being able to switch to an application which is not on the Space in order to make a new window there (browser, terminal, IM, etc.). It also forces a Space transition even when the application has a window in the Space I'm in!

I've been resorting to the pathetic work-around to map such applications to all spaces, which increases clutter and defeats the purpose of having multiple Spaces. In short, this is a departure from Desktop Manager, etc., behavior that is not appreciated.
