Hello Milan,

I'm having quite the same idea:

2011/5/11 Milan Oravec<moravec ukf sk>:
1. is there in gnome-shell any way to show all windows (running
applications) from all workspaces at once similar to OS X Exposé or compiz
scale windows picker? In activity overview are showed only running
applications from one workspace.

I did like the all-Windows-Exposé of compiz and wanted to have it in
every window manager, but then I was running KDE 4.5 and got used to
their workspace overview:

At 2:08 the 4 workspace-overview is activated. It has all the windows
presented in a per-workspace exposé. It's just like all-windows-Exposé
  but additionally grouped by workspace. I think that is a real
enhancement to the normal Exposé. What do you think?

This new grouped-all-workspace-exposé somehow merges the three
overviews current-workspace-Exposé, all-windows-exposé and
workspace-switcher (that I had on three different hot corners before).
The gnome-shell overview is already a merge of App-Launcher, Taskbar
and (not that perfect) Exposé and workspace-switcher. I would like to
see the features of grouped-all-workspace-exposé somehow integrated
into gnome-shell.

To do so, I would suggest the following steps:

* Replace the grid-exposé by native-window-placement-exposé.
    =>  Already implemented and easily testable via the gnome-shell
extension attached to this bug:

* Make exposé inside workspace thumbnails available.

* Think about enlarging/rearranging workspace thumbnails to make
window picking easier.

Would that solve your problem sufficiently?


I remember their firsts versions of Gnome-Shell showed all the
work-spaces, it showed 2 dividing the screen in half and then 4 little
screens when the user added>3 work-spaces.

I believe that they changed it for the dynamic work-space.
  gnome-shell-list mailing list
  gnome-shell-list gnome org

I can remember those old versions and dynamic workspaces feature is better solution I think, but needs some fine tuning.
