Working on Os X 10.10.1 with TotalSpace2 last update.
I use TotalSpace a lot but I also like to use Cmd+Tab two switch between my Apps.
It’s been a while since I have this issue and only now start asking support.
I have 2 rows and 2 columns. Apps are assigned to one of the 4 spaces.
If I am on space 1 and trigger Cmd+Tab to switch to an app that is on space 3 it will do nothing. I will just loose focus on my current app (space 1).
I expect the normal behaviour to be:
- Working on space 1 App
- Trigger Cmd+Tab and select space 3 App
- Automatically move from space 1 to space 3 and open/focus the selected app
I have the same problem when simply using the dock icon. Nothing happen when I click an app icon.
It should open the app and move to the corresponding space.
Maybe I missed something.
With best regards,
This is probably due to your Mission Control settings. Please go to System Preferences, Mission Control, and tick “When switching to an application, switch to a Space with open windows for the application”.
Hopefully that will do the trick!
Unfortunately, it’s already what I did!
I really don’t understand.
Hope you can still help me.
I guess I found!
I’m using Onyx and Parameters/Mission Control/Turn on Mission Control was disabled…
I enabled it and guess what. It works like a charm now
Thank you! Hope it will help someone.
Ah, great, thanks for letting us know!
There is a drawback with turning this setting on that I learned of recently from a Parallels support person. For certain applications (Parallels being one of them), for example, if you close an application in Space1 it will automatically jump to Space3 (to what I believe is the previous active application). There is no current solution for this.
When I had this option enabled here is how I could reproduce the problem 100% of the time:
- Switch to the Space that has Parallels in full-screen mode
- Start Dictionary application
- Quit that application
Upon doing #3 the screen will automatically jump to Parallels screen.
