So far I like Spaces, with a couple of caveats:
- It can be confusing to open multiple windows of the same
application in separate spaces. For example, I'd like to have one Textmate window for web development and another for my GTD list, in separate spaces. The problem is that when I use Command-Tab to switch to Textmate, it switches to the most recent Textmate window I used instead of the Textmate window in the current space (which is what I would prefer.) I think Command-Tab should give priority to application windows in the current space. As far as I can tell this is a Spaces characteristic since TextEdit behaves the same.
- When I open the Find dialog in Textmate, it switches to the last
space where I used Find, instead of bringing the Find dialog into the current space. I believe this is a Textmate issue, as it does not occur in TextEdit. If this is scheduled to be fixed in version 2.0, I can wait. Should I submit this as a bug, or is this expected behavior?
I wouldn't be so quick to blame TM. I find a lot of funkiness with other apps (firefox, mail). I'm sure that since Spaces is brand new there will be some wrinkles to iron out. Though I'm not too sure that Apple will actually fix them.
Also, I thought 2.0 was just a rumor that wasn't going to happen. At least that's what it says in the IRC chan...
I don't believe TM is to blame for #1. As for #2, I haven't tested other apps, but TextEdit seems to behave correctly while TM doesn't work. I suppose that could still be a bug in Spaces.
I hadn't heard about 2.0 being a rumor.
