Bug Description

The keyboard bindings for Unity, specifically things like <super>+a, <super>+e, <super>+w are not readily discoverable. After upgrading to Natty from 10.10, I lost the custom key bindings I had for those (which is fine), but I had to open up CompizConfig Settings Manager and click through a bunch of settings to see what the new ones were.

If you press and hold the super key an overlay is created over the specific launcher, isn't that enough?

No, not if the launcher is invisible. That also doesn't reveal keybindings like the scale binding to show windows from all desktops, or all windows on the current desktop.

Thank you for your bug report, that requires design input, not sure what would be a good solution though, maybe the desktop documentation guide should be easier to access, the documentation team did a request to have it on the launcher by default...
