full screen app and change workspace?

I'm running Stellarium in Gnome. It is running "fullscreen". I'd like to open the manual (pdf) in another workspace. However, since it is running fullscreen the panel workspace selector is not available. Using Ctrl & Alt + Right (or left) arrow only shifts the view in Stellarium about an inch on the monitor.

Is there any way to get to another workspace?

I'm not running Gnome, but Kde.
Maybe Gnome also offers the possibility to assign keyboard-shortcuts to actions, such as walking through desktops.
