Make Japanese input in ST more convenient



Thank you very much for all the hard work on ST!

Actually, I tend to input Japanese text a lot in my text editor on Windows, but unfortunately, it is very inconvenient as of now, it seems:

As you can see, as I type Japanese, the cursor remains empty, and the suggested list is populated at the very bottom, and once I select and finalize a candidate, the whole text suddenly appears at the cursor position. This makes it extremely distracting and difficult to type in Japanese text…

Is there any way to change this behavior? If not, it would be great if something were done to change this behavior.

Thanks again!

PS. It seems a similar question was asked back in 2012: Input method lost position but was never answered…



I believe this is being tracked here:

related but for Linux:



Thank you for the fast reply!

It seems the issue occurs with any person wanting to use CJK IME input, and appears to be known for about 3 years now.

I don’t want to sound like a jerk, but is a fix incoming soon?

Thanks again!



I hope Will-san is working on it.
