I am using OS X 10.8

I wish I could change the order of input method.

How do I do that?


To setup input order (taken from here):

  1. Go to System Preferences
  2. Click on Language & Text and select Input Sources Tab
  3. Select language which have multiple input orders like Chinese for example
  4. Whilst highlighted click on Keyboard Shortcuts button to the right
  5. Check "Select the previous input source" and "Select next source in input menu"
  6. Now click on the keyboard shortcut for both the options as mentioned in point 5 and enter your convenient options
  7. you can now use those 2 new setup shortcuts to easily cycle between input sources.

  • This answer is good, but it doesn't answer what the OP asked for. This allows to change inputs but they're always in an arbitrary order established by the OS. – Petruza Jun 11 '18 at 17:44
