I spent last week on Fedora 19 and am now upgraded to Fedora 20. How can I set up multiple work spaces in more than the (obtusely constraining) 1-dimensional list? In 19 I found an acceptable work-around with the "Workspace Grid" extension, but it doesn't seem to work in 20. I guess I'm hoping for an easy answer based on the fact that "Keyboard Settings" includes bindings out-of-the-box for "move to workspace right" and "move to workspace left". Why are those there if there is no apparent way to HAVE a workspace on the right or left?

Gnome 3 as its standard configuration always has one empty workspace in addition to the ones that are in use. If you create a window on this empty workspace, Gnome creates a new empty workspace.

I you like to have a fixed number of always available workspaces, you can change the behaviour with the Gnome Tweak Tool (yum install gnome-tweak-tool) by switching off dynamic workspaces.

Standard Gnome 3 does not provide any means of organizing your workspaces into a grid.
