    Does anyone know how I can flip between two different keyboard layouts with one keyboard? I often need to type in Russian using the Cyrillic script. I use an internet program on a translation website now, but it would be a lot easier if I could just flip a switch or something and then all my typing would be in Russian.

    EDIT: Doens't matter, I've just worked it out. I needed to select the lay out for each text window.

    System Preferences -> International

    Check the two keyboard layouts and Show input menu in menu bar.

    Wouldn't that work, or are you looking for something more...? If so, what...? :)

    That was what I was using, worked out what I was messing up. Edited post while you were typing by the looks of it. What I was doing was clicking on the flag in the bar which changed it to Russian, but I didn't know it changes it for only the window that you have in focus at the time. Now I've worked that out I'm fine.

    Just got to get an I skin and draw out the key board lay out. I can't touch type in Russian yet so I'll using that little keyboard window.
    Thanks all the same.
