I have a few keyboard layouts or "input sources" as the system calls them. The system also lets you define a keyboard shortcut for "Select next source in Input menu".

enter image description here

I had muscle memory of how many times to hit that key combo to go between various keyboards. Then after a reboot they are now in different order. Is there a way to set the order so it doesn't change?

  • What version of macOS are you running? – Monomeeth May 29 '18 at 1:40
  • The latest - 10.13.4 at the moment. – Rob N May 29 '18 at 2:45

Since you're using more than two input sources you'd be better off configuring a specific shortcut for each input source.

Without knowing the exact version of macOS you're running, there are a number of tools you could use to achieve this:

My suggestion would be to create the same shortcut and use digits (i.e. 1, 2, 3, and 4) to differentiate them.

  • Hi Rob, just wondering if you've had a chance to try any of the tools I mentioned? Did you get this sorted in the end? – Monomeeth Jun 13 '18 at 7:47
