The program works perfect, but can you make the preview of the virtual desktop more like this:

not identical, only similar :roll:

Please do not make it more like mission control. I wrote a long post a while back explaining multiple shortcomings of mission control and how spaces and expose from Snow Leopard were much better. Personally, I would much rather it be more like Spaces and expose than mission control.

And in case you are interested in my long post, here's a link:

And in regards to that video, I would love to have one hot corner bring up all my virtual desktops and have another hot corner show all windows across all virtual desktops. If you did that and really made it work as well as spaces and expose on Snow Leopard, I would definitely be willing to pay around $40-50 for that.

Unfortunately, Win8 has its own uses for the corners of the screen :(
Hopefully some accommodation can be worked out, though.

I haven't been able to get any sort of hot corner app to work in Windows when the corner is shared between two monitors. For example, I have a 24" and a 23" monitor. Although they are right next to each other, one has more vertical pixels, which creates corners on the shared edge because of the different resolutions. OS X handles these corners perfectly. Unfortunately, nothing in Windows is able to recognize it.

Don't worry, it's a lot more like "classical" Spaces+Exposé than like Mission Control. It's basically a fancy combination of Dexpot's Full-screen Preview and Window Catalog modules where you can move windows around with your mouse and zoom in on individual desktops and windows.

That's awesome, I'm really excited to see that update!

Do you know if you will be able to get hot corners working with multiple monitors? And another thing I thought would be cool would be if a hot corner envokes a certain action, like full screen preview, hitting that same hot corner again would undo it. So basically you aren't forced to select a space and it would just default back to the space you were in originally. Would that be possible?

And out of curiosity, did you start developing this after using the spaces function on OS X or Linux?

Hey All,

Do you know if you can force the hot corners to one screen? I have 3 monitors and use the middle one with a 3x3 arrary of virtual screens. Works great, but I want the hot corners to be on the middle screen. Let me know.

Thank you,
Jeff Hortian

Sick program!

No, it's currently not possible to assign hot corners to a particular screen. We'll try to add it in a future version.
