10.5: Disable Space switching on Command-Tab in 10.5.2
Authored by: eusebe on Feb 13, '08 07:45:13AM

Thanks for this hint, but it is wired down here.

On space One, I have one terminal and one Safari windows open. If I click on the Safari window and then switch to Terminal through command-Tab, I cannot see the Terminal window. The active application is Terminal but I still see the Safari one. If I click on the Terminal window and try to switch to Safari, I get the same problem with the latest.

Am I alone with this issue?
Thanks.

10.5: Disable Space switching on Command-Tab in 10.5.2

This default seems to result in some bizarre window behavior. I thought this was great as well, but I encountered the same problem as the previous poster. With this default written, command-tab appeared to drop some windows of the app you switch to to the back rather than bringing it forward. Granted, you definitely have that as the active app (as the menu bar reflects that), so it may be useful if you just need a new window, but it doesn't necessarily bring any windows forward, and if anything, appears to push them to the back. This behavior only appears to happen when you have application windows in multiple spaces, and even then, it's not consistent... Sometimes it will bring windows forward, and sometimes it push them to the bottom.

Same problem for me. Too bad. This was the behavior in spaces I was really wanting.

I guess it is left "hidden" for reason. We can now see that Apple is considering a different workflow around Spaces, possibly addressing previous concerns and the apps vs. tasks orientation, but it is still (yet?) not ready for real use. This "no auto swoosh" option helps and confuses at the same time. Helps in not sending you to the wrong workspace, confuses by including windows in other workspaces in Command-Tab switching.

What should be happening is prioritization: if an app has active window in current workspace, then show it, otherwise switch to another workspace.
