Full Screen Apps w/ Shortcut Keys

I’m using a trial of TotalSpaces and I would like to set up shortcuts to jump to full-screen apps. Eg:
ctrl-[ emacs
ctrl-] iterm

I have tried assigning emacs and iTerm to dedicated spaces w/ shortcut keys assigned, but whenever I send emacs or iTerm into full-screen mode, they jump into new spaces. Is there a way to prevent this? Or an alternate strategy I might try?
