In leopard my apps opened up in different spaces, now in lion my apps open up in the same spaces (or desktops) but I can not set up what desktop to use.

 

I could set this in Preferences> Exposé and Spaces but now it missing. How can I do it?

 

Sorry for my english.

    You now have to create the new Desktops/Spaces and then add the apps while in the desired space.

     

    - Go to Mission Control and scroll up to the upper right hand corner of your display.

    - Click on the '+' sign to create a new Desktop.

    - To assign an app to it, go to the new Desktop and with the app active and running in the Dock, right-click on it and move to Options and 'Assign To:' This Desktop (or All Desktops if you wish)

     

    You'll have to do this for every app and new Desktop.

    Unfortunately, it's a step backwards in initial setup when compared to Spaces in 10.6.x

    You're welcome.

     

    Note:  you can also add an app to the Desktop even if it's not running so long as it resides in the Dock.  The option is there regardless.

     

    Enjoy!
