Total Spaces 3 on MacOS 13 Ventura

Before I upgraded wanted to see if folks had tried and found it works.

Running 0.9.125 on a MBP and Studio.

I have seen no changes from Monterey going to Ventura. Running on either OS is not quite as good as the old days, but it’s still very usable so far.

Where are you guys getting TS3? I found some outdated vers on the forum.

TS3 on 12.6 intel was working well with a few tiny bugs, but then the application stopped launching. Very strange. I keep restarting and it still is happening.

If BinaryAge needs some helping hands to get a stable vers, I’m sure they can find and hire someone on UpWork to help. Meanwhile, the entire community suffers.

This download still seems to work. (This is running on apple silicon) https://downloads.binaryage.com/TotalSpaces3-0.9.125.dmg

I could cry and kiss you right now. For some reason yours is totally working for me!!!

I am using an intel Macbook Pro, i9.

OH MY GOSH. Amazing. THANK YOU for sharing your link!!! I don’t know why it’s launching right now when it wasn’t before, but it is. Ventura, the space manager thing is AMAZING. Combining this with TotalSpaces3 is Heaven.

Edit: I spoke too soon. Damn.

I pressed the shortcut to get the overview explosion diagram, of all the spaces in the grid, and it froze. I restarted, same thing: Now it won’t open the app anymore again. Ugh, too many Ventura bugs.

Where is BinaryAge? At least do the right thing and pass the source code on to some Devs who will actually continue and update this great work. Or make it open source or something with a copyleft license, like FireFox. My mac experience is basically ruined, and completely in their hands. :pensive:

TS2 obviously doesn’t work on Ventura either right?

They don’t appear to be maintaining the software anymore. @stephen said that he might be interested in passing the code onto the community but I haven’t seen any updates on this.

I’m using TotalSpaces v3-0.9.125 with Ventura on a Mac Studio with two screens. It works as well as it did on Monterey, but the combination of TS3 and Stage Manager is really great. For folks who thought Ventura would make TS3 obsolete, it is just the opposite. A good 10 min. video is The Comprehensive Guide To Mac Stage Manager - YouTube by MacMost that explains using Stage Manager. Recommend putting the Stage Manager icon in the menu bar so it can be quickly turned off and on. If you have two apps side by side on one screen SM will minimize one of them by default and that means if you want/need to look at both at the same time SM has to be turned off during that time. Elsewhere in the blog people have offered to put in dollars to get TS3 to prime time. I would be interested to help, but it looks as if there needs to be someone who would take the responsibility to do this. Because TS3 works so well with Ventura, this is a good time to take the opportunity.

Can anyone confirm they are using this on Ventura with Apple Silicon and it’s working well? I think mac studio is a silicon machine but want to confirm before I take the plunge on my 16" M1 MBP.

The problem is some of us need more than 16 desktops. Please bring back more desktops!

I downloaded TS-3 on my M1 Ventura computer but am not sure how to activate it. I read somewhere that you do not need to turn off SIP, so I have not down that. Could you help?

You’re stuck on Big Sur with an Intel machine then.
