their grandma is used to switch layouts with the now depricated in GNOME
shortcuts , but the new default is just not easy to use on some keyboards
(my laptop for example) . And as far as I've seen the main reason to change
the behaviour like that is not to interfere with shortcuts in the apps (and

not a viable argument - the shortcut should be evaluated at key release ,
which means there's no conflict between said shortcuts .
Actually quite a few people seem to disagree with you because we've
got several bug reports specifically asking for those shortcuts to
trigger on key press.

Thank you for the kind reply . As for the modifiers only option - it's either new , or I completely missed it when I tackled the issue at first , it completely solves my first concern . As for the bug with Qt - thanks for having a look , lets hope that gets picked up soon .
