Description Jens Petersen 2014-07-02 07:18:37 UTC
Description of problem:
The Pinyin IMEs has a confusing toggle menu for switching
between Chinese and English input ("English" should also really be
Latin input but nevermind).  This natural in the toolbar
but unintuitive in the IME/Input menu.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. goto ibus icon menu or gnome input menu
2. click on Chinese

Actual results:
switches to English

Expected results:
clearer discoverable UI

Additional info:
maybe "Chinese <-> English" and "English <-> Chinese" might be clearer?

Much better would be IME input mode icon of course...

Maybe we can change the English label, but keep Chinese translation un-changed.

Comment 2 Jens Petersen 2014-07-15 08:04:50 UTC
I think it would be better to fix the underlying UI problem.
