    Hi All,

    I've just installed latest EPKL windows release and all working perfectly

    Quick question though - it there a way of turning EPKL off after running it? i.e. returning to original QWERTY layout?

    You can turn it off by menu or hotkey; see the Settings file for the available hotkeys. But it sounds to me as if you'd rather want to suspend EPKL? That keeps the program in the background so you can easily get it back up.

    In the latest release you can even specify suspendingApps, programs that automatically suspend EPKL while their window is active.

    If you want to return to QWERTY but keep Extend and other stuff active, you can have a QWERTY VK layout on switch and just switch to that. Again, there's a hotkey for switching layout, by default Ctrl+Shift+2.

    All is well here, thanks. Yeah, Extend keeps getting more awesome as I develop it further. I now use Tap-or-Mod (ToM) Extend, which is furthermore set up as a Mother-of-Dead-Keys (MoDK). The power, the power...!  ♪~└[∵┌]└[・▥・]┘[┐∵]┘~♪
