After running DVAssist2.0.1.61, I see the faint "D" on the icon on the right side of the toolbar. I switch the keyboard (QWERTY) to Dvorak and a bold "D" and a check mark appear next to Dvorak in the menu that I get by right clicking on the faint "D". The keyboard switches just fine, however, I cannot switch back. I tried to left, middle, and right click but the keyboard didn't switch back. I exited and ran version 0.7.1.44 and the keyboard switched back immediately to the default (QWERTY) layout without even toggling through the toolbar icon. I am using a public machine that is running Windows 2000 Professional. I also noted this same behavior when using a public machine running Windows XP.

On a very small note, the title on the DVAssist page has "DvAssist", whereas all of the other references on that page have "DVAssist" (a capital "V" everywhere). And being almost trivial, the sentence about fixes reads, "Fixes so upgrading from old versions prior to 2.0 works seemlessly." The last word is spelled "seamlessly".

Thank you very much for your effort. I use DVAssist almost all of the time. I like the reminder in the toolbar that shows that the keyboard is Dvorak, especially so that I can switch it back for another user.

Sincerely,

    Thx, Stan.

    There are 3 ways to toggle the layout - one of them, as you found, is half-broken (it'll turn Dvorak on, but not turn Qwerty off). The two other ways are (1) double-clicking the tray icon (2) using the keyboard shortcut (which defaults to Ctrl+Shift+F12 and is configurable). I almost always use the keyboard hotkey, so that helped this bug slip through.

    I've found another bug and have more features I want to add, so you should see a new release hopefully in the next week. Let me know if the other toggle methods aren't working for you.

    (Thanks for the spell checks, too. The lowercase 'v' in the blogki title is a necessity for page names, like many older wikis. 'Seemless' is just wrong :-)

    Ripped out the Actions altogether. They weren't really helping, just getting in the way. I think I actually had this working at some point, then re-assigned the action to the Dvorak menu, which switched which click event it was linked to.
