Can't get IME to work with NA versionFollow

Any other NA players having problems with getting IME to work in FF14? Installed and activated the Language. Language tool bar pops up in game, but anything I try and type comes up as straight English and I can't convert to anything else. I hope SE didn't do something stupid and disable the IME function on the NA version.

Any suggestions about how I might fix this?

Sorry if this is a repeat. I've seen other threads of a similar nature but no suggested fixes.

I have no problem.... I can type japanese in my NA game just fine. Are you sure you're doing it correctly? Once in the JP IME mode you can still toggle english-japanese with left ALT + ` (same key as ~) give that a try.

It should work fine. It just goes by the current language settings on Windows, not internally, to my knowledge, so if you're playing in windowed mode, just keep the language toolbar in the taskbar so you can see what mode you're in.

Alt+Shift will switch languages between EN and JP, but by default, Japanese mode is still alphanumeric. From there you need to manually switch to hiragana/katakana with these keyboard shortcuts:

Hiragana = Ctrl+Caps Lock
Katakana = Alt+Caps (note that if you just switched to JP input, this will actually activate hiragana mode first; from then on it will only activate katakana, and you'll need to use Ctrl+Caps to switch back to hiragana)
Alphanumeric = Shift+Caps

Also, Alt+` will toggle back and forth between alphanumeric and whichever kana mode you used last (semi-redundant, but it's designed to emulate a Japanese keyboard, which has dedicated keys for this type of switching). All of these shortcuts are customizable in the language settings.

The Alt+` did the trick. Thanks for the help.
