Windows' Japanese IME and and Google's Japanese IME both use Layout1 for Kana mode. However, macOS's Japanese IME uses Layout2. Notice the different locations for ろ、む、へ, and some symbols. Is there any way to use Layout1 for macOS's Japanese IME?

  • PS My usual recommendation for anyone who does not like something about Apple's Japanese IM is to use Google's instead. m10lmac.blogspot.com/2017/05/… – Tom Gewecke Nov 7 '17 at 4:34
  • I might go there and ask. But I am afraid that there probably are fewer users than here. I have already been using Google's Japanese IME on macOS, but since Apple's has some features that Google has not, I wondered if I could just fix the layout. – Damn Vegetables Nov 8 '17 at 1:27
  • I'd be interested in hearing what features google is lacking. You can try looking inside system/library/input methods/japaneseim.app for a keyboard to modify, but I haven't found any. – Tom Gewecke Nov 8 '17 at 12:36
