    I have a question for developers running the DP: how does fullscreen work with multiple windows and the same app?

    The fullscreen improvements look great, but one drawback that has always stopped me is the inability to switch between multiple windows of fullscreen apps. In other words, if I have two spaces open with the same app (different windows or files), can I tab between them with Cmd-~ like I can in non-fullscreen mode?

    What if I'm using the same app on both monitors in this setup? For example, a fullscreen text editor that has one window open on one display and another on the other display. Can I switch focus between them from the keyboard?

    No, command-~ doesn't switch between full-screen windows. Quite unfortunate now that you point it out! You should files a bug with Apple

    Command-~ doesn't even work in ML for full screen apps. I guess a full screen desktop is considered it's own environment (By some coder that decreed it so). I wish it did myself but honestly, if this is the only nag I think we're lucky.

    The new Full Screen abilities in 10.9 for dual displays for me is like going from one machine to two. Each with their own dock, menu bar and independent Mission Control functionality.
