Bug Description

In Ubuntu 11.10 there were 2 usefull shortcuts for windows management:
 - Super + W Enables the 'scale' effect, it shows all windows from all the workspaces.
 - Shift + Alt + Up Enables the 'scale' effect, it shows all windows from the current workspace.
In Ubuntu 12.04 both do the same:
 - Super + W Enables the 'scale' effect, it shows all windows from the current workspace.
 - Shift + Alt + Up Enables the 'scale' effect, it shows all windows from the current workspace.

How will my mom find her windows form other workplaces now? :)
Super + S is not the same. It shows only the upper windows. One workspace with 2 maximized windows will show only the top one.

I understand this is a feature not a bug since the Beta had the old documentation (11.10) and the new behavior (12.04) now both are the same. I think this behavior is importand and I want to bring it back. If bugs.launchpad.net is not the right place to start a conversation on a removed feature please tell me where I can propperly do this.

Thank you for reporting this bug to make Ubuntu better. As you mention, this is not a bug but rather a feature request, something which the design team needs to approve and provide instructions. Hence I am marking this bug incomplete, Best rest assured it shall be looked into.

You can also discuss this on the unity design mailing list.

affects: compiz → compiz (Ubuntu)
Changed in compiz (Ubuntu):
status: New → Incomplete
Changed in unity:
status: New → Incomplete

Is there any workaround?

I know how to add a new shortcut key but I have no ideea what command to add. Is there a way trough which all the windows from all the workspaces can be displayed in expo?

Andrei, there are lot of duplicates of this problem, which is with compiz and not unity. The developers will be working on this issue soon. See bug #933776.
