Looks like the new Spaces feature in Leopard doesn’t work with some Java apps, including IntelliJ. Specifically, you can drag the window to various spaces, but when you click on the icon in the dock, the screen doesn’t automatically navigate to the correct space.
My guess is that this has to do with the way IntelliJ creates the Swing-based windows it displays. Spaces probably is keying in on some hidden window and so it doesn’t know where it should take you.
On the other hand, most apps properly support spaces just fine, even when multiple windows are open in different spaces. For example, Safari windows in two different spaces will simply cause spaces to alternate between the two windows every time you click on the Safari icon in the doc.
Here’s to hoping Jetbrains fixes this soon…
Wow – this is embarrassing. Another one of those “I can’t believe I haven’t posted in so long” posts. But really, it’s been 5 months since my last post, and 7 months since my second to last one. Ouch!
That is going to change, especially because I little side project I have going on involves a lot of blogging…
As for what I’ve been up to…
- Got married a few weeks ago
- Sold my company earlier this year (I don’t think I ever actually blogged that – whoops!)
- Been traveling a lot to Boston (50% of the time)
- Speaking at various conferences (The Ajax Experience, STPCon, StarWest, etc) – mostly QA-related stuff
- Not too involved in Struts and OpenSymphony, but I hope to be again soon
- Still fairly involved in OpenQA
I think that’s it. More posts soon…
Forget all the whizbang stuff… Stacks, Dock, Time Machine, etc. And look past the fact that stupid Apple has decided to abort Java on OS X. As someone who travels a lot and loves his basic Dell keybaord, this is what I’ve been waiting for:
Yup – that’s right. OS X will finally automatically change the keymapping for me between my laptop keyboard and my desk keyboard. Considering all the travel (and lounging on the couch) I do right now, I have probably gone in to this preferences panel over a thousand times just this year. Never again!
