Hello Keyman Support. I just finished a five-day class for Cheyenne language speakers. The class was on technology to support their language development. On Thursday we had students install and practice using Keyman. Timing was perfect since you announced the free version available the preceding day.
I need to report a problem each student encountered with the version posted now on the Keyman website, 9.0: The Cheyenne keyboard would not stay active whenever they would begin to use a different programs, such as changing from Lexique Pro to Microsoft Word. I recall having this issue myself a number of years ago, but then it was solved for the paid version 9.0 I currently use on my own computer.
I tried to find the setting in the students’ Keyman so that their Cheyenne keyboard would stay enabled as long as they desired but I was unable to find that setting. Perhaps I missed it during the pressure of trying to keep the class going.
I don’t know if it makes any difference, but I discovered that all the computers in the computer labs at the tribal college where I was teaching are still using Windows 7. My own computers run under Windows 10.
Is there any way that we can change a setting for the student computers so that the Cheyenne keyboard will stay enabled as long as each user desires, regardless of whether the user changes to a different program?
I am back home now from the tribal location, but if there is a simple setting change I can try to communicate that to someone back there so they can make the change.
