Use Caps Lock to switch to Japanese
Authored by: umijin on Feb 13, '07 08:01:38AM

My Logitech s350Mac keyboard doesn't have a CapsLock light, and I wouldn't find the Romaji setting satisfactory in the interim, unless I mainly used Japanese.

The problem with the OX10.4.9 and the Kotoeri system is that the default key command for switching from English input to Hiragana (Command + Spacebar) is mapped to open Spotlight. Absolutely bizarre of Apple to take a long-standing keyboard combo and use it for something else.

So, I would suggest remapping spotlight to (Control + Spacebar) so that you can keep the (Command + Spacebar) combo for kotoeri. And I find this combo much easier to reach for than Caps Lock (and less likely to accidently turn on).
