    The side bar shows 2X2 but I have 1X4 setup, neat!

    Re: workspace-switcher will indicate workspace on

    Putting a positive spin on things (using 3x3)...

    It seems that I can go from any W, to any W, by clicking the open app icons, in the launcher panel, now.

    Before, the (open) launcher icons would only go to open apps in adjoining Ws.

    For instance, if I wanted to go from an app in W-1 to W-9, I had to use the switcher. Clicking open apps, on the launcher, wouldn't take me from one W to another, if they didn't reside next to one another, in the switcher screen.

    Does that make any sense? Don't have time for screenies, right now

    I'll have to check it out, more thoroughly, when I get home later.

    I think I understand. Only using 2x2 from the beginning, Ubuntu 11.10 worked by clicking the open app's icon on the launcher, going to the work space where it is. That's improved by workflow for my graphic design. I was then hooked onto Unity from then on. Attachment shows my normal work situation. <smile>

    Actually I think that is a compiz effect provided to the Unity Plugins (or to this effect).

    As far as with 1x4 -
    The source can be altered to work with, probably just in the 2 blocks of code below. (ExpoLauncherIcon.cpp, lines 49.. & 73....
    Ws1, (top-left) is already given & as it currently is bottom-right is a freebie - anything wrong (not defined correctly) gets it.
    Code:
    void ExpoLauncherIcon::OnViewportLayoutChanged(int hsize, int vsize)
    {
      if (hsize != 2 || vsize != 2)
    Code:
    if (vp.x == 0 and vp.y == 0)
        icon_name = "workspace-switcher-top-left";
      else if (vp.x == 0)
        icon_name = "workspace-switcher-left-bottom";
      else if (vp.y == 0)
        icon_name = "workspace-switcher-right-top";
      else
        icon_name = "workspace-switcher-right-bottom";
    If you know or can figure how 'vp.x' & 'vp.x' relate to 4 linear Ws's then seems easy to alter to pattern desired

    12
    34
    or
    12
    43
    or whatever
    Not knowing what vp.x or vp.y mean was able in a couple of tries to get, attached quick vid

    I just updated to 13, and can't find a workplace switcher. I guess they decided to layer each app as you use it?????

    The default is now only 1 Ws, so you need to enable Ws's.
    System Settings > Appearances > Behavior, you'll see.
