Key Switcher — History of switchers

Automatic keyboard switchers have a long history. It all started with "Heroglyph" editor, that had the automatic switching capacity.

Then Punto Switcher was born, which brought automatic switching to all applications. It is still widely popular, despite its limitations.

Many of those limitations were overcome in Keyboard Ninja, which had an advanced engine supporting multiple languages and performing faster switching. But Keyboard Ninja was developed too fast and quickly went out of control. It had so many features unrelated to switching, it has become difficult to maintain and expand.

This is when we decided to go back to the drawing board and create a 3rd generation switcher. It was in the works for several years, slowly taking shape and building upon Keyboard Ninja engine to the new levels of sophistication.

Right now version 2.0 of the new Key Switcher is released.

As you can imagine, these efforts take a lot of time and there is very little compensation coming from a freeware product. If you like the switcher that you are using and want to see new capabilities developed, please consider donating something. No amount is too small. Thank you!

Не запоминается настройка "Не исправлять случайные ошибки регистра букв".
Если установить эту галочку, то после перезагрузки она снова сброшена.

Постоянно возникает проблема: я набираю текст, например, в украинской раскладке, но если хочу исправить ошибку в предыдущих словах и перемещаю курсор при помощи мыши, свитчер иногда переключается на другой язык. Например, если правлю 1 букву в середине слова - на английский; или же на русский, если вставляю одно или больше слов
