Western Cree (TH-Woods) Keyboard Help

Important Notice: The default for this keyboard is for characters to be composed. For example, this sequence "kwe" produce ᑴ (U+1474)

You can change the keyboard to produce decomposed characters in two ways. The preferred method is to use Keyman → Configuration.

  1. Using Keyman Configuration: On Windows or Linux, go to Keyman → Configuration → Keyboard Layouts → Western Cree (TH-Woods) → Keyboard Options and choose Decomposed. You may need to close and reopen your input application and keyboard, before the default behavior changes. This method will change your default to Decomposed and everytime you switch to this keyboard it will remain using the Decomposed style until you change it back to Composed style using Keyman configuration.
  2. Using RALT hotkeys (primarily needed for macOS): It is also possible to switch from Composed to Decomposed using the RALT EQUAL sequence (RALT+=). Switch back to Composed using the SHIFT RALT EQUAL sequence (SHIFT+RALT+=). This method will change to Decomposed during just this session of using the keyboard. After you stop using the keyboard it will return to Composed.

This keyboard is distinguished by: TH characters that resemble Y characters (with a bar), w-dot precedes the character (East Cree style), western finals, zig-zag R's and L's. It uses Unified Canadian Aboriginal Syllabics.
