Anyone have any ideas how to fix it?


  • on new account it works
  • tried uninstall/install, didn't help
  • I don't have any clue at which moment it stopped working, since I don't use it often
arnis@kerrigan:~$ io.elementary.shortcut-overlay

This happens if shortcut key is removed.

Apparently it's a bug that have been fixed in version 1.2.1
