    In the expose pane of SL there was this option (or it might of been somewhere else, I forget), I have mail set to open on desktop 2, firefox on 3 etc.

    Now I can't find this option.
    And if you get rid of a desktop it nukes the old settings you had for SL.

    This is a very important feature because I don't want stuff just opening on in one place then needing to rearrange it.

    When I right click the Application, and go to 'options', the 'assign to' option is there, but I am unable to click it... what's up with that?

    The options are below that. Just click the desktop that you want - all desktops, this desktop etc.
