Hey, I love TotalSpaces, but something really weird has been happening lately. I have cmd + 1, cmd + 2, cmd + 3, cmd + 4 assigned to quick-switch to spaces. It’ll be working normally, then after a while (not sure what triggers it), i’ll press a hotkey, and it won’t switch. Then I’ll press it 2 times, and it’ll switch. Then the next switch sometimes takes 3 presses. Then the next switch sometimes requires me to press cmd + num 3-4 times. It just keeps stacking up and getting worse.
The weird thing is that TotalSpaces seems to “catch up” at some point, and then execute all the buffered switches. So, when I’m having this issue, if I press cmd + 2 (for example) 10 times straight, it will switch on the 10th press. But if I click the icon for an app on the desktop I’m going to manually, it’ll go to that desktop then switch back to the one I’m on quickly. Then again, and if I keep doing it, it’ll burn through the stack/buffer of delayed hotkeys, and then it works as expected again.
Quitting and re-opening TotalSpaces resets this broken ‘buffer’/stack, but it quickly starts again, and becomes frustrating to use. I’ve also tried reinstalling, to no success.
I’ve tried closing every application open, and it does seem to happen less, but it still happens even I have only 1-2 applications open, no matter what they are.
Any idea what’s going on or how to debug this? It only happens on my laptop, and my desktop is set up identically but isn’t running into this issue. I’ve tried lots of things but can’t figure this one out
