Super+Shift+Right doesn't work

Bug Description

With the recent change of the workspace switching shortcuts from Alt+Ctrl+Arrow to Super+Shift+Arrow, only the Up/Down/Left combination works. Using the Right key does nothing.

Coupling this with the ridiculous removal of Alt+Ctrl+Arrow shortcut (WHY WHY WHY???!!!), I can only use 2 out of the four workspaces without resorting to the mouse or calling applications directly via the Dash.

This is not good enough, especially not for an LTS.

I have somewhat the same problem, except that super-shift-left works, but not super-shift-right (so I can go one way but not the other). Up and down seem to work.

Another maybe unrelated problem is that super-shift shows the shortcut overlay, so it appears unexpectedly when I navigate.

Now that you mention it, left works but right doesn't for me too.
I'll update the bug description.

Yeah, the short cut overlay thing is another bug that affects most of the commands with Super.
