Leopard gives us the feeling of freedom which we can even jump through the space.
Setting Up Spaces
During the first launch of your Leopard right after installation, this Spaces featured is disabled. Spaces can be enabled under a tab named Spaces which is inside System Preferences → Exposé & Spaces. There are several things you can do inside here..
- Enable/disable Spaces
- Show/hide Spaces icon in menu bar
- Increase/decrease rows and columns number
- Assign Application
- Change shortcut for either activation or switching between Spaces
There are several tricks that I discovered while using Spaces :
- The Secondary Mouse (the right-click of mouse) can be set to activate Spaces. However, this is not suitable for Windows switcher who have already got addicted on using right-click for calling up contextual menu.
- Assigning Application can save your time because it can help you switch between Spaces automatically. For example, Firefox was assigned to the 9th Space, whenever the active window is Firefox, Leopard will automatically switched to the 9th Space.
- When you encountered freezing Application at one of your Spaces, you still can switch to other Spaces in ease and Force Quit that freezing Application.
