    I just noticed... I can't seem to switch between spaces anymore by pressing control-1, control-2, control-3 and control-4.

    Usually I had it setup that my email at work was open on 4, web up on 1, chat on 2, and 3 was my "hey, I wasn't fooling around" blank desktop. Has anyone else noticed it stopped working? (might have been when I upgraded from 10.5.5 to 10.5.6?)

    I checked in the spaces config, I just saw the settings to use the arrow keys with the control, option, or apple keys.

    Thanks for any info.

    Change the settings to something else, then close System Preferences. Then go back and change them back to what you want. I've had my Spaces preferences get corrupted before, if that fixes it you should be good.

    /facepalm on this one.

    I went back in to change a preference and quit out and noticed this time that the "To switch directly to a space" was blank...

    switched it to ^ Number and now my control-#'s work perfect. So it turns out I was corrupt and not the prefs this time. Thanks!!
