QuickPinyin is amazing and I've recommended it to a lot of people. Congratulations on developing this tool, it's really useful.

If I can suggest one change, it would be to not interfere when using the Chinese input on Windows. For example, if I want to write 好 on the native pinyin to Chinese input Windows has, I need to type hao + 1 (meaning it's the first option of all the characters). If QuickPinyin is activated, it will input the first tone and for some reason become hoā. I think you should have no problem reproducing this.

Normally simply turning QuickPinyin off with the "s d f" combination would be enough, but I need to constantly change between typing in mandarin and pinyin with tone marks for the purpose of my studies. I don't know if anyone has mentioned this already, if yes, I apologize, but is there a way to have QuickPinyin auto-disable in the Pinyin to Chinese input method? 


Hi and thanks for your kind words!


I think this is the same problem reported previously, please downlaod the fix from this post:




I intend to release an update at some point but unfortunately ATM I am up to my neck in work trying to start a business and don't have the time, though do let me know if the fix solves your problem. I will get around to it, eventually.
