spacesapple.pngIf you tried out our introduction to Mac OS' Spaces feature, and you liked Spaces, I've got a couple more tips that have helped me work more efficiently with Spaces.

The first is Kent Sutherland's free software, Warp.  When enabled, Warp allows you to move directly between Spaces simply by moving to the edge of the screen.  Your spaces are laid out just like they are in the Spaces preference pane -- normally in a square or rectangle.  So if you're in your #1 desktop, you can switch to your #2 desktop by moving to the right of your screen -- or to your #3 desktop by moving to the bottom of the screen. 


You can avoid accidentally switching Spaces in all sorts of ways in Warp: requiring a delay, kind of like the Eject button on your keyboard; requiring you to physically click on the edge to move to the next Space; or requiring you to hold down a modifier key before the mouse moves you to the neighboring space.  I personally turn off the delay and click features, and require the Command key.

In any case, Warp extends Spaces to give you an especially intuitive way to switch between your different Spaces.  For example, remember how you can drag LiveType titles directly in to Final Cut or Avid?  Well, with Spaces and Warp, there's no need to rearrange your LiveType and Final Cut windows so that you're able to drag: instead, just open LiveType and Final Cut on separate desktops, and drag the LiveType project icon up "through" the edge of that space into the Final Cut space, and let go where you want it.  Then get right back to work, without worrying about resetting workspaces or anything.
