Just wanted to say 'thank you' to Bram and other developers for
releasing 'official' clipboard and strftime() patches, that completely
solved clipboard and strftime() issues on my PC (WinXP, GVIM 6.1.422).
Since these issues are solved, I must admit, that currently GVIM is
fairly useful in multilanguage environment. The only problem that
still exists - is that GVIM forces it's users to use non-standard
keyboard layout switching hotkey (C-^ - keymap switching).
Maybe for an experienced VIM user this does not sound like a major
problem, but this _is_ a problem for all the newbies. You may not
believe me, but _all_ the people, whom I was recommending to try GVIM
were complaining about this issue.
So, please, think about allowing to use langmaps when 'encoding' is
set to 'utf-8'. This will greatly simplify GVIM usage for all the
Or maybe there is a way to 'block' system keyboard layout switching
hotkey (say, 'Alt-Shift') when GVIM window is active and map 'C-^' to
this hotkey? Any workarounds?
