Please add the option to move the "hot corner" overview to the right-hand corner.

Would be nice to be able to move the hot corner to any corner.
I prefer bottom right.
But the workspace needs to be able to be moved on the panel or option to remove it.

Specially if you choose to put panel on top : left hot corner superpose to menu icon

I agree that this is absolutely necessary if you move the panel on top, as MajorGrubert noticed the hot corner conflicts with the Menu.

Upper right corner makes most sense if you have the panel on top then, especially considering that now that corner is free of the IM / Logout options. The only catch being that you would possibly/probably activate it by accident when going to click on the furthest right workspace icon(s).

Bottom right corner apparently makes sense if you have the panel on its default position, at the bottom, but consider that 1) same catch as above 2) pushing the mouse cursor to the bottom right corner is probably more tiresome than towards either upper corners (which is why I prefer a top panel NB 100% persona habit here!).

In conclusion, since this feature is very much dependent from personal habits, it should be possible to move the hot corner to any corner. As an alternative to mouse use, an easy keyboard shortcut should also be available.

Commit 9834847 adds some options for hot corners. I haven't tested it yet, however.
