    Yeah, I confirm the problem, and it doesn't look like it's specific to Ctrl+ shortcuts, as Ctrl+Shift+ won't work either. I guess you'd have to live with cycling through Win+Space.

    Same problem here, but I found the solution.
    I'm not really sure about English titles, but it seems to be Region and Language, tab Administrative, Language for non-Unicode programs, set Ukrainian.
    Now I am able to switch to Ukrainian language with hot keys in all MS applications.
    LoremIpsum, should work for you too.

    Well I did that too, from the beginning. Just didn't mention it.

    On the problem: Now I'm using Windows 8.1 and it has exactly the same issue; but I'm using the different workaround.

    First, after setting Ctrl+digit shortcuts for all three input languages, they are displayed properly in the shortcut settings dialog but they DO NOT work until I logout and login again. Then they work fine but are NOT displayed properly -- at least one is missing (marked as "none") even though it works.

    That's weird but viable. Windows way, damn.
