Hi is it a bug or was it actually designed so ? when an application is in fullscreen and i hit 'alt-tab' the applications that would normaly show are hidden. any idea on how to fix this ? if possible at all. Thanks

Open System Settings from the launchbar and click 'Keyboard' then 'Shortcuts' then 'Windows'

You can assign alt+tab there as a windows switcher.

alt-tab is working except when in fullscreen, it continues to work but it is hidden, it doesn't show the windows switcher – jibreel Aug 27 '13 at 16:21
