Mac OS X

I cannot turn off keymagic at login window

keymagic has no control of switching on/off input methods on macOS.

This likely to be a bug of macOS. (Note: Issue solved in macOS Sierra)

You can at least avoid this issue by selecting System Preferences > Users & Group > Login Options > Show Input menu in login window. (but not always work)

How to install keyboard layouts?

On macOS, you can install keyboard layouts by copying km2 file into ~/.keymagic (Please create directory if not exists)

keymagic keyboard menu is empty and keymagic won't work

This is known bug and still figuring out for a fix. In the meantime, you can kill keymagic process from Activity Monitor and try to type again.

I don't like notifications being shown up when I switch keyboards

Go to System Preferences > Notifications > keymagic. Set alert style to None.


I get runtime error when starting keymagic

This could be because of missing dependencies. Please refer to notes written at downloads page.
