Use Caps Lock to switch to Japanese
Authored by: quaresti on Feb 13, '07 09:52:12PM

I've been using this for a while now. One big difference for programmers is that the \ key shows up as ¥ when you're typing in romaji. I haven't yet found an easy solution for that. What I do is switch to hiragana mode, type in \, hit enter to stop the conversion, and then go back to romaji with another capslock.

Gets annoying when typing long strings of \n\t\whateverescapecharacter, though, so I usually have to switch to another input method when working on a program.

Use Caps Lock to switch to Japanese

I'm not sure how you're getting ¥ in romaji. I've tried everything and I can't find a single difference between my romaji mode and regular US English; I still have to use option-y to get ¥. You could try looking in the Kotoeri preferences though. In the second tab (入力文字), you can pick things like \ or ¥, but in mine that only affects hiragana mode.
