comment What is an efficient way for developers / power users to use OSX window management and Spaces on a single screen?
All good ideas; thanks. I use grab+Ctrl+num a lot. I've never seriously tried assigning apps to spaces. One issue is I often need "extra" stuff to come up as needed, sometimes side by side and sometimes not. E.g. I'm working with Vim+R each at half screen in one space with a web browser in another, mail another, IDE in another.... Then I need to view R doc and it loads in the wrong space. Or I look up something completely separate in a browser, open a directory or a terminal, and need side by side with the Vim/R panes visible. The initial organization turns into a mess. What's your approach?

Yes....but as you indicate that is only sometimes helpful. More often I need to switch from App X in Space N to App Y in Space M.

comment How can I make applications on OSX open new windows in the same space when opening a file from Finder?
Question explicitly states that that option is already set.

@rsanchezsaez In fairness not Apple-authored apps, e.g. Chrome, MacVim, etc. But I've observed a similarly frustrating behavior with the Finder, in which certain ways of instigating the opening of a folder that I have open in another space takes me to the displayed folder in the other space, rather than opening a new Finder window in the current space to display the folder. (I can't right now remember exactly what causes that to happen, but I'll post if/when I do remember. It happened just yesterday and prompted me to offer the bounty but I neglected to note the details of the event.)

Unfortunately no. All the aforementioned applications are already assigned as such.

comment Make iTunes stop prompting me for my username and password
Ahh, good thought, but the problem has persisted over a year of neither having nor syncing an iPad.

comment Is there a best / OSX-specific way to force all files created in a directory to have certain group ownership?
OK so I realized the issue--I download file bar in ~/downloads and move to /users/shared/specialdirectory but bar doesn't then "inherit" the group newly created files in specialdirectory do. So this is not the question I asked, but it is the issue I meant to address. Any thoughts?

I think you're right and I'm an idiot and didn't check carefully enough what I had done. I need to wait a bit to ensure that this is right and then I'm going to flag my q or something b/c it would then be a clear dupe of the last link I cite.
