Mission Control in Lion is a disaster, so I'm glad to see this program. (Obviously, the developer thinks so too.) I wonder if this program does away with the Mission Control feature where all of an app's windows from all spaces are grouped into the single reduced view. I suppose that's useful but should be an option, not the default. You can't even tell which space each window belongs to. I just want the Snow Leopard version of Spaces and Exposé back. Based on the developer's web site of contemplated changes, this looks like very much a work in progress, so I'll be keeping my eye on it. Let's hope it's not such a memory hog that it undoes its good intentions.

2.7.9 just destroyed everything that was saved. I can't switch spaces, I can't set apps except for all spaces, I can only use 16x16 setting. every preference is gone. Time Machine does not work for this.

Hooray! I upgraded to Mojave and had some issues with this. Like others, this is an indispensable app; it's become part of the way I use my Mac. Oddly, the in-app updater takes it only to v2.75. How is this different?

Mojave beta 1 kills it completely. Hope it is updated soon. <sobbing>

Updating TotalFinder and re-enabling SIP has disabled TotalSpaces2. I had to disable SIP again to get it to work. Will there be an update to TotalSpaces2 that allows re-enabling of SIP?

It was an update to listing itself (description, images, etc.)

Note that this app (like TotalFinder) has been discounted 50% (to $9) due to the fact that it will not work in El Capitan (though there is a workaround: turn off the new "System Integrity Protection"). More info at http://blog.binaryage.com/el-capitan-update/

While I understand that developers need to eat too, the idea of almost paying $20 for an app that mimics the Spaces function from an earlier version of the Mac OS (I am currently running Yosemite) is nuts. I understand that some users may have been really enamored of that earlier functionality, but considering that that was a fifth or a sixth the cost of the entire OS (before Apple began giving it away) it strikes me as too expensive.

TotalSpaces also gives a large degree of control and customization to your Spaces (a.k.a. Mission Control) experience, including custom transitions and timing (the stock animations are tooooo slowwww), and more.

WARNING: Apples recent security update (2015-01) for 10.8 *breaks* TotalSpaces 1.2.11 which still worked prior to this update. Now it's gone and I'm stuck without a solution.

Let me amend this. I logged in after the update and a window said it couldn't start TotalSpaces and to contact BinaryAge Support. I activated Mission Control and my spaces came back. But if you run it on login, it doesn't display the window # in the menu bar until you run Mission Control. Weird.
