curently, sending a window to another workspace, switches into that workspace.
other WMs, e.g. kde, instead stay where you were (so only the window disappears).
would be good if this behavior is configurable - always this way or the other.

Humm, no, not yet another option... There are far too many options.

You can achieve what you want with the window operation menu, and the menu has a keyboard shortcut now.

So this dates from 2006, and even now it holds ? 

If by window decoration menu you mean typing alt space send to other desktop, it's like scratching your left year with your right hand.
Comment 3 Olivier Fourdan editbugs 2008-10-10 22:11:58 CEST
Yes, it holds because I see no need for this option.

Maybe it would be better to look at this from another angle:
Make shortcut "Move window to workspace N" to actually move window to workspace N, without additionally doing anything unexpected? That would be logical IMHO.
Comment 5 Mike Burns 2014-09-13 04:31:13 CEST
In the least it is confusing that the two actions have the same verb - the Window Manager settings calls it "Move window to workspace n", and the window menu calls it "Move to Another Workspace > n". Perhaps the keybinding setting should call it "Jump with window to workspace n".

What is the suggested way to quickly send three windows to workspace 7 (from, say, workspace 1)?
