Suppose I have a full screen app. I am on a Desktop space. I click on the full screen app's Dock icon, but nothing happens. I would expect the system to switch to that full screen app.
I vaguely remember turning this off via some defaults mockery a month ago. Now, setting
workspaces-auto-swoosh to YES does not help. 'When switching to an application, switch to a Space...' option in Mission Control preferences is turned off but also does not help.
This works on a test account by default on same machine.
Additionally, in the ideal case, it would only switch when I explicitly click on Dock icon, the default behaviour to automatically switch every time an app has some popup dialog to display is also very annoying. I don't know if this is possible.
I am using OS X Yosemite.
