I've been using computers for 20 years, and I still haven't found the ideal key combination for switching keyboard layouts.
I've tried so many combinations, including adding a dedicated second keyboard for a particular layout.
The main problem is mixed text, where I find myself changing layouts every other word...
@ecliptik Space hold down is a great idea, that would free up another key for me to use for something else.
Here's my layout if you're interested: https://configure.ergodox-ez.com/ergodox-ez/layouts/XE5Vg/latest/1
The interesting stuff is in TextNav1 layer, which is setup for Mac not Linux, I need to situate that at some point. That layer is for "vim like" keybindings every where there's text.
@Juliusdelta ah nice, I haven't seen the ergodox config before. I've only done QMK directly since I have a couple of boards where I attempt to keep them consistent.
Here's my space-hold and double tap toggle config (TT), https://github.com/ecliptik/qmk_firmware/blob/ecliptik/keyboards/yd60mq/keymaps/ecliptik/keymap.c#L89
