10.5: Disable Space switching on Command-Tab in 10.5.2
Authored by: JoeHope on Mar 30, '08 08:33:08PM

Like others above, this was almost what I was after since I switched to Leopard. I can live without preferential space switching on a command-tab, but I can't really work properly if command-tab doesn't give my windows focus even if they exist in my current space.

I tried the Witch preference pane from the comment above, but my list of windows is usually too large for convenience.

Then I remembered the command-`. This key sequence cycles through open windows of the current application within the current space. When switching to a new application via command-tab, one touch of this key also brings the windows of that application to focus. It's quite conveniently placed, as well.

So this hint, along with throwing in an extra keystroke when changing apps via command-tab, allows me to work within each of spaces without unexpected behaviour.
