When I click a unity icon it shows smaller versions of all the windows for that program. So for example, if I have 3 terminals open, and click the unity terminal icon I see all 3 windows to select for focus.

Is it possible to limit it to only show windows for the program that exist in the current virtual workspace?

How have to provide information about which version you're using. This has been changed. – Jo-Erlend Schinstad Mar 26 '12 at 14:53
I did not find anything either but I think it should be a standard features! Or at least have a key to change from unique virtual desktop to multi virtual desktop! – benpaka Mar 26 '12 at 15:09

It's not through unity, but alt-tab switching prefers the last one opened on the current workspace, at least for me. It also doesn't remove non-current workspace from the hover list or give you a picture of the window though. Depending on your situation it could work.
