Bug Description

Binary package hint: unity

In the screenshot attached you will note that there is not enough screen estate to show all of the launcher apps using the super key. You therefore can't see what buttons to press for the apps lower down.

This would include the lenses, rubbish bin etc.

The obvious thing to do at that point is press the up/down arrow to make it scroll the list of apps in the launcher but this does nothing. The next obvious thing is Page up/down that does nothing either.

There seems to be no way to do this fairly obvious task :(
