I recently switched from openSUSE to Antergos, but it's still Linux and
still KDE Plasma5 as my DE. Always multiple desktops and like you, a
couple dedicated ones and a couple freelance desktops.
I have window rules that will send particular app windows to particular
desktops regardless of where I am when they are opened. Depending on
what the window manager allows, this could be a way to avoid the
inconvenience that Mark Wieder mentions.
I did have the same kind of issues that Ralph DiMola mentions with some
Livecode stuff showing up on all desktops, but it was a long time ago
and I can't remember if it was under KDE4 or Gnome 2. I don't see this
any more under Linux and KDE.
