Default Foreign Language Input in OSX SL - 10-27-2009, 04:37 PM

Hi All - I did my homework checking the forums and came up short of an answer, so here goes...

I'm about to order a 10v to be set up with Snow Leopard using the netbook bootmaker (via Mac method). My question - does the full foreign language input capability still work? I assume it does, but want to make sure the bootmaker doesn't delete any of the language files to save room. I need to be able to input in Simplified Chinese occasionally, so thought I'd check.

Thanks!

Everything works... when you install SL, you can choose not to install additional fonts, and this might cause problems with Chinese input (I haven't tried myself), but since the additional font package is so small you could just leave it. Everything else is untouched. I actually find chinese input in SL much better than in Leopard.

Thanks, that helps. Glad to hear they've improved the chinese input as well.
