Re: Grid workspaces?

Go into Settings->Panel->Items and add 'Workspace Switcher' to you panel. Then access the properties for the switcher, and you can set the row to 2. When your in a particular workspace, the switcher highlights it on its display.

Re: How to change the size of the desktop grid?
