    So, there are three programs I use a lot: Safari, Coda and iTunes. I would like to have them on separate desktops, like I had them in separate spaces in Snow Leopard.
    All good, by "right" clicking you can choose to assign the program to the current desktop.

    However, this seems to be a little buggy. Eg if I assign Safari, Coda and iTunes to (respectively) Desktop 1, 2 and 3, but I open iTunes before I open Coda, it will place desktop 3 before desktop 2.

    So it opens in the correct desktop but they're not placed correctly.
    Is this a bug, or am I doing something wrong here?

    The person who posted above me is wrong, there is a way to fix it.

    Under Mission Control in System Preferences, there is an option to Automatically Rearrange Spaces based upon most recent use. Uncheck that and it won't rearrange your desktops any more.
