I work on a computer in france but I am used to typing in qwerty so I set my computer to type in qwerty. Problem is, whenever someone wants to use my computer for a little thing (like revising a word document), the person starts typing thinking
that the keyboard is in azerty! therefore the text is all jumbled. He has to delete the phrase, change the keyboard layout, retype the sentence...
This is very tedious when it happens seriously 20 times a day
. I suggest an app where you would select text, press a keyboard shortcut, and the app would re-type the text in the other keyboard layout. For example, the app detects the chosen keyboard layout (qwerty or azerty), reads the characters "1qw" and types it back as "&az". The keyboard shortcut could be Control+Shift+A (or Q.... whatever's to the right of Tab
It should be pretty easy to do, and extremely light-weight.
