In previous versions of Ubuntu, I could click and hold on a window's titlebar and then use my hot key combination to switch to a different workspace and the window would come with me. However, in 11.04, if I try this, the keyboard switching hot key appears to be disabled once I have clicked on the titlebar. I understand that I can use keyboard shortcuts or right click the titlebar, to move a window to a specific workspace. However, I prefer the other behavior and am curious if there is anyway to get it to work.

Maybe you can live with Ctrl+Shift+Alt and Arrow to move the current window to another workspace?

As I stated before, I know I can use keyboard commands. I am trying to habituate to the change, but I do prefer the other behavior. – Tucker May 18 '11 at 22:18
