[SOLVED] keyboard shortcut "super" and "super"+additonal key

Hi all,

as a long time Gnome user I try to setup Xfce's keyboard shortcuts as close as possible to Gnome because I just use them all the time without thinking. Everything works well until now. I just run into one problem.

I would like to use:

1. "super" to open the whisper menu to easily start new programs
2. "super"+"arrow up" to maximize a window
3. "super"+"arrow right/left" to tile the window

I configured all shortcuts, the first one in the keyboard section and the others in the window manager settings. But even that operation 1 is only triggered after I release the key it still blocks operation 2 and 3. Operation 2 and 3 only works if I configure a different shortcut for operation 1.

Is their any workaround? Anything I could do to setup the shortcuts as described?

Thanks a lot!
