    Assign applications to spaces.
    Assign an application to any space from its icon in the Dock with a click. Quickly spread your work out in different spaces by assigning an application to a space right from the Dock. Just right-click the Dock icon and select a space for the application.


    I cannot find this feature in the latest build. :confused:

    Hm, never even knew this was a feature.

    And no, I don't have it.

    Interesting... when I do a Google search the results show the OP's quote ("Assign an application to any space from its icon in the Dock with a click.") and link to Apple's page. However, when following the links and trying to find above quote on that page shows no result at all.

    Seems to me as if Apple has let go of this feature very last minute. :mad:

    Wait so you're saying in Leopard, right clicking on an application gave you the menu and on the menu was a space assignment option?
    Not on my Leopard. I have spaces enabled and certain apps assigned to those spaces and nothing.

    But does it remove any previous settings concerning this? I cannot purchase/upgrade to Snow Leopard without this feature. All my programs have been assigned spaces and my work-flow depends on it.

    ... first of all if you do just a simple upgrade you will not lose anything.


    second of all if you did i'm sure you could take a simple screen shot and have everything up and running within 5 minutes.

    i use 6 spaces and just set it up to my liking on my Mac mini which finally was upgraded from OS X 10.4.11 yesterday afternoon.

    it took me literally 5 minutes.



    and yeah i'm missing that feature too! :/ oh well

    No. He is saying this was supposed to be a feature in SNOW Leopard and it is not there. You can not assign a program to a space from the dock, only from the preference pane. I wish it was there, it would be handy.

    Bummer, I was looking forward to this too as it is a cool feature.

    10.6.1 maybe!
