[Bug 1577234] Re: Keyboard Navigation Docs Page is missing Super+D to select Items in launcher


Thanks for your report!

When testing on my 15.10, I find that if I hold down the <Super> key,
the Keyboards Shortcut window is shown and the first 10 application
icons in the Launcher are numbered. And yes, if I press a number key
while holding down <Super>, the application with that number is started
(or, if it was already started, becomes focused). Involving the <D> key
makes no difference for me.

Can you confirm that behavior?

  Keyboard Navigation Docs Page is missing Super+D to select Items in

Status in ubuntu-docs package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:


  I noticed that the shortcut Super+d allows the user to select a
  process/icon that is listed in the unity Launcher in my 14.04 edition
  of ubuntu. Each of the icons  is then listed with a number over to
  select a process while you hold Super+d.

  This shortcut is not listed on https://help.ubuntu.com/16.04/ubuntu-
  help/keyboard-nav.html or https://help.ubuntu.com/16.04/ubuntu-help
  /shell-keyboard-shortcuts.html the likely two most appropriate places
  to list this shortcut.

  I am not 100% sure that this shortcut is enabled by default in 14.04
  or 16.04. If someone could please confirm and also update one of the 2
  document pages listed above, that would be appreciated.

  I've attached a screenshot of this as well.
