Ubuntu default shortcuts Ctrl+Alt+Numpad overriding google docs quick style shortcuts

I love Google Docs - it's just so fast and user friendly.

I was really used to the Ctrl+Alt+1 / Ctrl+Alt+2 / ... shortcut allowing you to quickly set a level 1 / 2 / ... header style on a line.

When I switched to Ubuntu a couple of years ago, I realized this keystroke was already assigned to Window placement and was overriding GDocs shortcuts, but I never took the time to dig where I could override this behavior.

Today, I'm proud to announce that I finally found it ^^. In case it might help anyone : the offender is the "Grid" plugin. You can configure it or switch it off using CompizConfig Configuration Manager.

Hope this help.
