    Hi All,

    I've searched, but haven't seen anyone discussing this issue...

    In both PB 2 and 3, sometimes, when I switch "spaces?" using two finger swipes on my iMac's Magic Mouse, OSX will snap back to the previous space without my command...

    Has this been reported and/or solved somehow? I can't be the only one...

    - Thanx
    - Jon

    It doesn't switch back to the previous space, it switches back to the other fullscreened window of that particular app. If the app only has 1 window you don't run into this bug. You only run into it with apps that have more than 1 window running in fullscreen mode. This also only happens when swiping on the trackpad/magic mouse. Using the keyboard or Mission Control to switch between fullscreen windows will work without any issues.

    The answer to the question if this has been reported should never be "no" or "dunno" because you should always submit it as a bug if you encounter something like this. That's what using the beta is for ;)

    Hi Dyn,

    You sure? None of my apps in any of the spaces involved are full screen...

    Yep, I've seen it on my Mac and there are others with the exact same issue. Enabling/disabling the "When switching to an application, switch to a Space with open windows for the application" (SysPrefs > Mission Control) has no effect on this unfortunately.
