Is it possible to assign the 4 or 9 spaces to some key combinations? Also that they do not interfere with another combinations?

You know that you can assign any combination of modifier keys plus number (to go to) or arrow (to move) keys to switch spaces?

Through System Preferences -> Expose & Spaces, keyboard shortcuts are at the bottom. By default you can only select one modifier, but if you hold down one or two modifiers when opening the drop-down list, it'll let you set it as a combination.

i mean, how to use applescript to tell "open application XXX in space nu,ber YYY" – asdf Jan 31 '10 at 21:28
Ah - I see. No idea on that one, I'm afraid... – Hugh Feb 1 '10 at 0:03

There is a similar thing on stack overflow... may not be exactly what you want but it uses applescript to open apps in the applications folder to a particular space.

It's rather programming technical so I can't help you much from here. :) See here

Maybe you are looking for Spacey, a free app I developed which gives you keyboard commands to move windows between Spaces?
