    I have Spaces set up to "switch directly to a space" using command+#

    For some reason, however, Spaces will only switch directly to Space # 1

    No matter what applications I have chosen for Spaces 2, 3, and 4, Spaces will NOT directly switch to them using the shortcut. I can still switch to them manually with command+arrow keys, though.

    It doesn't matter what application I choose as Space 1... I can directly switch to it. But the other 3 spaces just won't allow me to directly switch. (Yes, there's applications open and active in each of those spaces.)

    Anybody encounter this or know what's up? Thanks for your time.

    i dont seem to have this problem command+(insert space number here) works just fine. try to turn this off and back on. repair permissions? make sure no other shortcuts are defined for the other key combos?

    thats all i can think of off the top of my head.

    sorry to bump this back to the top, but i just wanted to report that--oddly enough-- it only needed a simple restart to fix. go figure.

    with that said, feel free to close this thread as you see fit :)
