Like the title said, keyboard shortcuts (a la Ubuntu) would be really nice (super+w, super+space, super+"1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,0" for fav shortcuts, etc etc)
Just throwing this here, I know a lot of people use those feature and it could bring more people to Solus and Budgie DE
It would be great if Solus and Budgie DE could unify the messing keyboards shortcuts for GTK based applications.
The current keyboard shortcuts for GTK based applications are messed with Ctl or Super or Alt based bindings. Some shortcuts are even too hard to reach with fingers conveniently, which is beyond the goal of shortcut. Unifying these varying shortcuts would better user experience heavily, e.g. implementing only Super key based and easily reachable shortcuts. The similar experience is implemented under macOS, which provides consistent experience on shortcuts across applications.
The Super key based shortcuts have several additional advantages:
1. Super key is closer to the center of keyboard than Ctl key on most of keyboards. It's more convenient to reach Super based shortcuts across the keyboard using one's thumb without moving the hands away the center of the keyboard, that's what shortcuts should deliver.
2. Super key based copy/paste shortcuts solve longstanding confusions of Ctrl based copy/paste shortcuts between applications. There's no consistent shortcuts for copy/paste under GTK based DE. It will be very clear and convenient to users if all applications use same copy/paste shortcuts.
