Bug Description

Tap super is supposed to show the dash whereas holding super + a number will launch an app. When I tab super though the overlays appear. It's a little bit distracting and kind of ugly. The overlays should only appear when I haven't tapped super.

The overlays should appear when Super is held down, not when it is tapped.

That sounds good. Tell me if I am summarizing the 2 possible scenarii properly:

1. User presses the super key
2. User holds the super key pressed for more than X ms
3. The overlays appear

1. User presses the super key
2. User releases the super key before X ms
3. The dash appears

@Florian: committed in unity 3D. Just to get the same experience, we are using 250ms in both the dash and launcher for all "tap" vs "press" actions.
