    Does anyone else find it incredibly annoying that you cannot open an MS Word doc in one space and then go to another space to try to open another doc there without being flipped back to the first space?

    This seems like a perfectly reasonable thing to want to do - I use Spaces with separate projects not applications.

    I've spoken to Apple support and they say it's something I need to take up with MS. I am well aware that these companies have in the past blamed each other for previous incompatibility issues.

    Do anyone have any insight on these problems before I do contact MS?

    I have a sort of fix, that seems to work sometimes, but not every time.

    Instead of double clicking the icon to open it when in a new space, drag the icon of the document onto the icon of word in the dock. Sometimes this works, not sure why only sometimes, but it definitely does work. I can open documents in word, in different spaces, without it bouncing back to the original space.
