I found the "unity tweak tool" the other day, and today I played around a bit ... and today I wanted to make some adaptions for the task switcher.

There is a field for windows switcher shortcuts; and I am wondering: how on earth would I disable shortcuts?

Example: it says Start switcher for all Workspaces

I can now click on "" and it then says "New shortcut" ... but well, I dont want to set a shortcut. And I could not find a way to get it to show "Disabled" like it does for other entries.

Any idea how that would work?

Normally if you press the Backspace key it will accept that as a null input and disable the shortcut.
