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...
@rzg I don't 100% understand what you mean by switching layouts, but, i use an Ergodox EZ keyboard which is powered by QMK firmware, which allows me to set layers for different layouts and toggle them on/off or "hold key to temporarily enable".
An example would be, I have arrow keys mapped to HJKL on a specific layer, and so I just hold a key on my left hand and HJKL turns into the arrow keys.
QMK is open source and a lot of mech keyboards use this firmware.
@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
