using gnome daily for work and private stuff, i often switch between workspaces on primary display only.
Switching workspaces on all displays at the same time isn’t useful for me, cause i have 3 displays.
And most of the time i don’t wanna switch the entire workspace.
I personally would love to see separate workspaces for each display.
This could help following scenario:
Display left: (open apps)
- ms Teams (workspace 1)
- other chat tool (workspace 2)
Display middle: (open apps)
- vs code (workspace 1)
- sublime merge or other git tool (workspace 2)
Display right: (open apps)
- Firefox (workspace 1)
- other browser for testing (workspace 2)
Having separate workspaces enabled, i have more flexibility than with
And i can still use workspace 1 and workspace 2 at the same time and i’m not limited to choose either workspace 1 or workspace 2 while having
workspaces on all displays enabled.
For showcase purposes i added a switch to multi-monitor view.
Another design option would be using this widget. (Screenshot from mouse settings)
