When opening files from a Finder window, I want them to open in the active Space, regardless of the application already being open on another Space. Instead, they open in whatever Space already happens to have an open window of the application. I've noticed this particularly with Microsoft Office programs, as I tried to reproduce it with Preview and Terminal windows but they seemed to behave properly, so I think that this problem lies within the MS Office suite.
I imagine that this is related to this question, but this occurs with windows that aren't minimized. Similarly, I've already unchecked three of the options in mission control;
- Automatically rearrange Spaces based on most recent use
- When switching to an application, switch to a Space with open windows for the application
- Group windows by application
If there are any known methods of disabling this behavior it would be much appreciated.
