    That's three. Now we're moving.

    Examples aside, maybe there is something else that those who appreciate Spaces and/or Exposé could do, in addition to appealing to Apple.

     

    Maybe we could increase the number of users who share the benefits of adopting Spaces and/or Exposé.  And, by doing it in a way that recognises that it's not relevant for all users/workflows, we might avoid some of the meaningless debates that can occur.

     

    There are still a lot of Snow Leopard users out there so if you agree and you're able to do something it needs to happen soon...

    Spaces disappeared about seven months ago. I have only seen a very minuscule amount of people mourn its passing.

    Yes I used Spaces. Seemed pretty buggy to me, so I turned it off after about six or eight months.

    What bug have you been wrestling with for six or eight months? No one here in this forum had a fix for it?

     

    I've never encountered any problem with Spaces. As a matter of fact I'm so happy with it I continue using Spaces on Snow Leopard.

    I havnt been wrestling with any bugs for the last seven months because I upgraded to Lion and got rid of that horrible bulkiness of Spaces and Expose. That's fine that you use Smow Leopard. I like to use the most stable and up to date OS so I chose Lion. I have now deleted my SL partition and backups. You can use whatever system you want, you just won't get anymore upgrades for it.

     

    Cheers

    Right... any ideas anyone? Sign a petition? Where?

     

    This forum is called Discussions.

     

    A petition without some meaningless debate with mulligans missus?

    A petition without anybody saying Mission Control only needs this or that and it's perfect? (For them.)

     

    Just as easy as Apple introduces new things in OS X, they remove what they want to remove. (There are examples of that.) I don't see Apple as a club you can talk to. I think I'll just wait for them to replace Mission Control with their next invention. It doesn't matter to skip a version of an OS and maybe 10.8 makes us understand and like where Apple is heading to.

  • 126. Re: Bring back old working Spaces and Expose

    Your choice entirely. Anybody is welcome to use whatever system they want.. Just as Apple is evolving to the demands of modern society, so to are windows. There is no escaping the fact. Learn to move on or eventually get left behind. For those that skipped SL, it will be harder to cope with Lion.as the next OS will be harder for those that skip Lion. Stay with Spaces. But don't criticised the millions happily working with Mission Control because you can't.

     

    Cheerio

    I, nor anybody else here in this discussion I think, would criticize millions of Lion users for working happily with Mission Control.

     

    But every now and then I come across opinions though, that demonstrate rather the opposite, often hard and with no fundamental insight of how Spaces in Snow Leopard can contribute to one's workflow.

    I see comments of people who never got into using Spaces (their choice), never got how it could help their workflow (if they have a workflow at all), who are in Lion sort of forced to use Mission Control and like of it what they could have been enjoying in previous versions of OS X, using Spaces. Then they want to compare.

  • 128. Re: Bring back old working Spaces and Expose

    Nobody is being forced to use Mission Control. Turn it off like I turned off Spaces in SL if it is annoying.

  • 129. Re: Bring back old working Spaces and Expose
    RobBT Level 1 Level 1 (75 points)

    Sort of forced I wrote. Mission Control is presented as the main control center in Lion and is difficult to get around. Also it's not turned off by default like Spaces in Snow Leopard.

     

    Your advice to turn it off is of as little use as your advice to learn to live with it, for anyone here in the discussion titled Bring back old working Spaces and Exposé.

    Just bring back the old Spaces and Expose, maybe as an option to MC. Or at least give us the option fo a grid layout and old style Expose. Please. Please. Please.

     

    Spaces and Exposé is gone forever and if you think about a computer that you touch the screen instead of a trackpad or mouse, then you see why it doens't matter about the MC details, your big fat hand is going to be in the way all the time like it is with iPads.

     

    I'm staying out of the Lion cage, Snow Leopard is great and I got it running on two machines, which I only use one or the other at a time.

     

    Call me when iOS X 11 appears in a portable HUD because I'm not going through another expensive hardware and software change with Apple, they got enough of my money, they are back from the dead, I've done my share.

  • 131. Re: Bring back old working Spaces and Expose
    mulligans missus Level 2 Level 2 (370 points)

    Call yourself. Spaces has nothing to do with iOS, it is in the Apple OS. Totally different. Only Launchpad has any similarities whatsoever, and again, turn it off if you don't like it. I hate Dashboard, always have, turned it off and got on with using my Mac. By the time you wake up, your Snow Leopard will be like OS 7 and you won't be ableto find the on bottom. And by the way, what software and hardware problems are you talking about? Spaces and Expose were just a part of the UI.

     

    Good Luck

    Perfectly put down to the point in only so few words.

    I completely agree with the original post. Mission Control does not show a thumbnail of all open windows but rather stacks them by application. The whole point of Expose was so you can see all your windows at a glance in order to switch between them. Mission Control lacks this feature, forcing the user to have to dig between multiple stacked thumbnails in order to view them.

     

    Apple please bring back the Expose feature that displayed ALL open windows in small thumbnails, unstacked and viewable at one glance. Until then, I'm sticking with Snow Leopard, unfortunately.

  • 134. Re: Bring back old working Spaces and Expose

    Your choice, but they aint coming back. MC has replaced it in the popularity stakes as well. Just stay with SL until you can no longer get updates for software for it.

     

    Cheers
