Bug Description

If two lenses share the same <super> + <key> shortcut, pressing the shortcut takes you to the first lens (in the order of the lenses bar). There is currently no similar way to open the next one using the same keyboard shortcut.

Suggested solution :
If a lens is already open, using its keyboard shortcut should open the next lens sharing it.

Well, ideally, no two lenses should be sharing the same shortcut :) But yeah, since you're working on the 100 scopes project, I understand your viewpoint. I'd say this bug is valid.
