I having two problems with kotoeri that I'm hoping someone can help me out with. The first I might have seen someone ask before on here but can't find it using the search so apologies if that is the case. Firstly, can you set kotoeri to work independently for each application? On windows for example, you can be using the Japanese input in Word, then once you switch to another application, that program's input preference comes into play. Basically, the language input system changes according to whatever application is in focus. In OS X, as far as I can tell, kotoeri works universally, so if I'm typing away in Japanese in Word then switch over quickly to Adium, the input still is in Japanese. A lot of the time when I'm busy and want to send a quick IM, and get back to my work, this can be quite frustrating for me, and for the person who receives a message in Japanese that makes no sense. e.g - "いぇs" instead of "yes". Is there a way to make kotoeri be application independent? Secondly, when working in MS Word, I am typing in English in say 12pt calabri, then I switch to Japanese, input one word then change back to English, the font doesn't return back to 12pt calabri, it changes back to English but stays as some gross ancient font. I'm guessing this might be more of a problem with MS Word but does anyone know how to change this? Or knows whether this happens in the iWork suite? I'd consider switching if it doesn't. It might not sound like much of a problem but it's annoying as hell. Any help would be much appreciated.
