I tried to change input language by pressing shortcut commandspace and also by choosing language on the menu bar. It automatically switches to English language.

The only way I found to fix it by rebooting the Mac.

Maybe someone knows another way?

I'm using English, Japanese and Russian on a MacBook Pro running OS X Yosemite 10.10.5.

  • There is no input source called "English". Do you actually mean US? Jun 29, 2016 at 12:43
  • Does this happen in all apps including TextEdit, Mail, Safari? Jun 29, 2016 at 12:43
  • @Tom Gewecke Yes, you're right "US" :) Yes, it happens in all app.

By putting Mac to sleep(holding the power button for couple sec) and then log in again it solves the problem, and I'm able to switch languages again.
