Wow, isn't Dr Darren nasty late at night after working too hard. That can happen after not reading all of the instructions (which are however in parts unclear). Once you find out how to allocate a Window (not an Application) to a Space it becomes more useful, however it could be made much easier (as this trail will explain).

Some of the things about Spaces that are so annoying for me

Just some of the things that could be done better include:

One apparently can't name the Spaces (or I have not found how to): 3. In KDE one can name each space, typically by project, as shown, 3. WISH: Named Spaces, at least as an option or on hover over a Space icon..

I have not found yet how to switch easily back and forth between windows of different applications when the windows are also in different spaces, as described under ISSUE: COMMAND+TAB between Windows in different Spaces of different Applications (when many Windows open) does not toggle properly, it moves to another window in the 2nd Space.

I often can't read the Window titles in the basic Spaces view: ISSUE: after F8 to Spaces view it is hard to see the title of the reduced-size Windows, because there is no title no hover !.

The Spaces view can't be seen at the same time as my main desktop view, sometimes it would be nice to have a Pager view floating on my desktop: ISSUE: have to leave the main Desktop view to see what the Spaces are.

And: ISSUE: can't access Spaces view from the Spaces icon button in the main menu bar

plowing (Am.) = ploughing (Br.)

Must have been very tired to use the American spelling, even when writing to Apple.
