Spaces Spaces Spaces

1.0.1
15 November 2007

For a more intuitive Spaces experience in Mac OS X 10.5.

Overview

Spaces Spaces Spaces is for users who get frustrated when the new Spaces feature on Mac OS X 10.5 fails to do what they expect (like when it frantically switches spaces whenever I switch between different applications).

Spaces Spaces Spaces is a partial attempt at a remedy. It works by injecting a small piece of code into the Dock. The code will prevent the Dock from switching to a different space immediately after switching to a different application (using Command-Tab, for instance). The result is a (hopefully) more intuitive Spaces experience.

You should contact the developer, the email address is in the lower right corner of this page: http://www.scsc.no/

Yep, Spaces is begging for an option to disable auto-switching that allows explicit control over when space switching occurs. Complex usage can easily demand too much conscious attention and effort trying to anticipate its seemingly unpredictable (at times) switching (mis)behavior. Right now I'm running VirtueDesktops on Tiger without any annoyingly interfering auto-switching enabled, which makes Command-Tab and Dock simply bring the selected application to the foreground whether or not it has any associated windows in the current space. Overall it's more manageable and tolerable for me that way, even with other bugs/quirks related to switching and keeping multiple for different apps where they belong. So, personally, the combination of space auto-switching with bugs and/or poor design choices may be acceptable for simple, casual usage but it definitely makes an unpleasant long-term usage experience. YMMV. :)

this is a great solution. looks like you can click an app in the dock once to switch to an app without switching spaces, allowing you to open a new (e.g. Safari) window in the current space. or click the app in the dock twice to switch to the frontmost window in another space. unfortunately, it doesn't work if you use Quickeys to switch apps. i have tons of quickeys shortcuts set up for switching apps, and invoking those still causes Spaces to jump around willy-nilly. I just wish Apple would add a checkbox to the Spaces prefpane to turn off auto-switching. Then it would work out of the box for newbies, and still provide the flexibility that power users require.

To StudioDave: why would you make a comment like that. If you like spaces the way it is just be happy. Don't get down on the rest of us for wanting more out of our mac experience. For the rest of us that were used to VirtueDesktops, spaces leaves much to be desired. I for one appreciate what the developer is trying to do. Dave, if you need to be negative, do it somewhere else.

People don't write freeware like this for fun or profit. They write it because they feel the need for it. And they're nice enough to release it to the world so other people who feel that same need can benefit. Apple is not perfect. Many of their decisions just don't suit some users, and some of their decisions are outright stupid. Spaces' behavior falls a little bit into both categories. If you don't understand how or why spaces IS broken, I recommend reading the developer's blog. He gives a very clear example.
