I use "spaces" or "launchpad" or whatever it's called now, a lot. I often open half a dozen applications in one space and then want to move to an empty "space" and open (maximize) an already-open application in that empty space. Instead, OS X slides back to whatever space I opened the app in. Very frustrating when my intent is to work in an application in a less cluttered space. I DO know how to move applications from space to space — to manually relocate an app to an empty space, but this is not my point. Is there a setting to always maximize / go to an open app in the CURRENT space you're in? I.e. never have OS X automatically slide to the space in which the application was opened? BTW... unchecking that option in Preferences does not do what I want.
