Despite the fact that I have told mission control under 10.8 to spaces when switching applications(to the key window), it does not appear to work. In fact the only time spaces works is when I tell it to switch using keyboard shortcuts. This started happening only once I unchecked show dashboard as space.
The following symptoms also occur: -Checking "show dashboard as space" does not re-enable dashboard -Dragging windows to the side of the screen does not cause spaces to switch -Keyboard shortcuts for mission control do not invoke mission control.
