Keymap preferences are at https://www.haiku-os.org/docs/userguide/en/preferences/keymap.html[[BR]] What's the name or where to find the app dealing with input methods?

Also, there's #13675 stalling all new chapters for the user guide...

Ah, right, that page is only listed on the Preferences page. Maybe we should put all the Preferences apps on the Contents page, too, for good measure?

I'll try to find some time to look into #13675 over the next week...

Yeah, I supposed we could add the apps, applets, prefs as another bullet level on the contents page to make it more visible. I look into it.

Added the apps, applets, prefs in a bullet sublevel, see https://i18n.haiku-os.org/userguide/export/docs/userguide/en/contents.html

The css for the bullet-sublevel may have to be adjusted, I dunno how exact that preview is, the translation tool shows the sub-bullets...

If anyone can point me to "input methods" (app/prefs) in Haiku, I can try to document it - though it might be tough for someone how doesn't use those at all. Otherwise we can close this ticket.

IME switching is done using the Alt+Space keyboard shortcut: http://xref.plausible.coop/source/xref/haiku/src/servers/input/InputServer.cpp#1461

It looks like the CannaIM documentation has a bit more information: https://rawgit.com/mt819/CannaIM/master/doc/manual.html -- not sure what other IMEs will include something like it that you could potentially "distill" into the Userguide.
