Mac OS Spaces causing unwanted Window Drag

When using Spaces on Mac OSX, you can drag a window to the edge of the screen. After waiting a while, Spaces will move to another space. This can sometimes be helpful, but sometimes annoying.

Problem: When I drag a object within an application to the screen edge to cause the application to start scrolling (in my case Audio Regions in Logic), Spaces comes up after 1-2 seconds and I´m of my app on the other space.

Solution: no clean solution, you can’t disable this feature. If you want to use spaces like I do, try the workarround

Workarround: set a delay time in seconds to active edges

> defaults write workspaces-edge-delay -float 15
> killall Dock
