How to drop to console in Ubuntu 17.10

It used to be Ctrl+Alt+F1, and then to get back Ctrl+Alt+F7.

Now it is Ctrl+Alt+F3, and the to get back Ctrl+Alt+F2. Actually a bit more logical than using F7. Ctrl+Alt+F1 is GUI login.


After upgrading to 17.10 like a true pioneer, I found the old CtrlAltF1 no longer switches between console mode and GUI, and a quick Google search brought up nothing useful. Was this feature removed entirely?
