I could reproduce that on my 14.04 and 16.04 installs. But <Super>+D
also opens an input area at the bottom right of the screen, so the
purpose of that shortcut is apparently something else. To be honest I
don't know what the purpose is.
I also noticed that you can start an application with <Super>+[number]
without waiting for the icons to be numbered or the "Keyboard Shortcuts"
window to show up.
So, to summarize, there is room for some kind of addition to the pages

Keyboard Navigation Docs Page is missing Super+D to select Items in
Status in ubuntu-docs package in Ubuntu:
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.
