Is there a easy way to configure $mod+tab to switch to the last used workspace (like dwm)?

EDIT: Basically I want to switch beetween my "pdf workspace" and my "development workspace" (eclipse, etc.) and my screen isn't big enough to display both at once (and I don't need the pdf always).

Maybe “workspace backandforth” (see userguide) is what you are looking for.

Well thats nice, but I'm looking for just `$mod+tab` (thats faster than looking for the numbers).

Read the answer again, and the documentation. It really says what you want.

Though you could also put the pdf in a scratchpad.
