Ok, my question might not be as clear as it should be, exclude my English. It is not my native tongue.

What happens:

When I press the Super key the sidebar appears and when I keep it pressed numbers appear on the icons and if I press them in combination with the Super key then the relative application gets loaded or the relative window gets evidenced. Unfortunately, this works only up to 0 (that is, 1 to 9, then 0) together with the s key (workspace selector) and t key (trash).

What I would like to know how to do, if possible:

Well, if there are enough icons to get to the 0 then other open windows or icons cannot be loaded using the Super key. Is there a way to change / customize this? For example, I could use the Super key in combination with g to load gedit (which would be as an icon in the sidebar).

I hope I've explained myself well.

Thanks beforehand.

That's not exactly what I intend. You see I don't really want a shortcut to load or an application or highlight its window (those this could work indirectly). I want to do that when an application shortcut is present in Unity without it being tied to any particular application. That is, I basically would like to extend the already present feature of calling up applications according to their place in the sidebar, beyond the 0 allowed by default. – Ederico Dec 18 '11 at 18:13
I'm sorry I think I still don't understand. Now, Super+0-9 (plus s and t) are two-keypress shortcuts. To add more shortcuts using letters, you would follow the instructions at the link. Don't worry about your English either, it's fine.(¿mejor de mi Espanol, no?). Try rephrasing or just post it in Spanish below the English, someone might translate better for you. It happens here from time to time. – Tom Brossman Dec 18 '11 at 18:36
Actually, I don't know Spanish, ;-). Besides English, only Maltese and Italian. – Ederico Dec 18 '11 at 18:38

Sounds more like you are requesting for a feature in Unity according to your last comment.Take a look at What kind of questions should I not ask here? – Nitin Venkatesh Feb 28 '12 at 15:27
