One oddity that I have come across is that if I am using an application in a space that's not the one that application is assigned to, and I want to open a document in that application, the open dialogue appears in the space the app is assigned to. It took me a long time to figure that out and drove me crazy for a while.

>> Unfortunately, that doesn't do what Victor asked for.  The neat thing about spaces is that you can distribute windows from a single application among the spaces.  The problem is that when you do this, the console/preview of a file in one space shows up in another space. It seems to me that this is potentially a TeXShop problem, in that it's not completely Spaces aware.
>> Your solution just forces all TeXShop windows to be in a single space, which might be useful for some things, but sort of defeats the purpose of spaces itself.
