Which version do you use?
FM14 seems doing nothing on setting "Set input method" as "Automatic" (default) so keep keyboard as is.
Changing it as "Synchronize with field language", it select keyboard that is not set as primary in control panel (first installed one?)
Sorry, I should know better than to leave that out...
FMP13, FMS13, fully Windows environment.
All users save 1 are using in english...it is the french keyboard I'm trying to sort out.
Sorry I couldn't replecate the issue.
"Automatic" works same as FM14, keyboard is not changed.
FM13's "synchronize" with the field's is "Font", not "Language". It seems keep language:EN keyboard:french on some fonts ( Arial, Georgia). I may not have any font specific to English or French.
Thank you user,
It isn't the font...it is the keyboard type.
With a french AZERTY keyboard, you open MSWord and type away...the A is an A, the Z is a Z.
Then you log into FMP...FMP treats the keyboard as QWERTY and the A is a Q, the Z is a W.
If you go back into widows settings and tell it you are on AZERTY, all is back to normal.
Then you close FMP, open Word...all is good.
Then you reopen FMP and you have to go into Windows settings again to change keyboard type back.
Bottom line...It isn't the field, it's the program...but where?
I couldn't see it.
I add English/French keyboard in Windows7 control panel and set it as default. While desktop (or Explorer) using Japanese/MSIME keyboard, run FM from start menu then it use "default language" English/French at start up. I can "ctrl+A" to quit it, the key labeled "A" works as "Q".
