I am an active user of workspaces in Ubuntu. Until recently, pressing Ctrl+Alt+D (
show desktop) acted only on the current workspace.
For example, one might want to minimize the applications in the current workspace, open a file, and then bring some of them back. The current implementation works on all workspaces uniformly which is counter-intuitive to me. The reason for the existence of workspaces is the separation of logic -- one can have a browser open in one workspace, a text editor in another, a terminal in a third.
The current functionality goes against this idea. Is there a way to restrict the action of the show desktop command to a single workspace only?
