    I’m digging the Spaces feature of the Mac OS.  I should have been using this a long time ago!
    If you are unfamiliar with Spaces, the feature gives you multiple “virtual” windows that you can switch between.
    It’s like having multiple monitors connected to your computer each with different views of your running apps.

    In the Settings for Spaces I redefined the hotkeys that switches between spaces.  It was assigned to <Ctrl>arrows but that prevented me from using those hotkeys to move around (word advance) in Visual Studio (using VMWare).  I reassigned the hotkey to be <option>arrows which had the added benefit of disabling Windows 7 hotkey to resize the current window (which I find annoying).

     

    One response to “Mac Spaces”

    1. […]  We then install VMWare and run whatever version of windows we need to on it!  This combined with Spaces for the Mac makes for a pretty nice development […]
