Just a reminder: Mac OSX 10.5.3 is now available for download via the Apple site, or Software Update.
Apparently, this update primarily addresses issues regarding Airport, Time Machine, Time Capsule, Aperture and Spaces. It also has numerous general fixes throughout.
A full list of this update’s details can be found here:
Say you have AIM open and then you open safari and then itunes. Say you want to move all your conversations along with the buddy list at once with out moving everything else while using spaces. Press ‘command’ and move one of the items and everything involved with that application and it goes with it.
This works with any app. EG, you have 6 pages open in safari. Go to spaces. hold command down and then drag just one of the pages of safari and it moves all of them.
With Spaces, Mac users can finally enjoy what Linux users have had for years: virtual desktops. However, Leopards implementation has a neat trick that I’ve yet to see in any Linux distro.

If you have multiple apps open in multiple spaces you can display all spaces and hit F9 (or whatever key you have mapped for expose) and you will get a display of every window open in every space. Since it’s easier to see than to read here is a video of it in action: link to video
If you have multiple spaces populated with various windows you can highlight one space (in the full screen spaces view) and press the “c” button (I guess for collapse or combine)this will send all open app windows to the highlighted space. I found this to be very handy!
Here’s a trick that has been passed on from previous versions of OS X although extended for other Leopard features. If you press shift when you activate a stack or spaces (unfortunatly not working with mouse in hot corners), your stack/grid, space or exposé will motion neatly slow.Maybe not that useful, but can be used to show them wind blowers how some stuff work!!
It’s very useful when switching fast between windows in spaces…
Well, I found it’s very easy to do this with mouse scroll wheel. Open spaces, then try operating the scroll wheel on your mouse for the switching
