Typing in Russian with windows 8
I have a problem typing (quickly) in Russian using cyrillic alphabet. I have a Russian mnemonic keyboard option which has the keys in the same spot phonetically (ex. D is Д). However it's missing some important letters like ч э щ. Recently I found some letters like ю ё by adding й with other keys, and ч by typing c+h. То get the other letters I need to go into Russian standard keyboard, but it takes too long to swtich between 3 keyboards instead of 2, and I never remember where the э and the щ are, and no I can't use keyboard stickers because the letters are in the middle of my keys. I know s+h makes ш on the russian mnemonic keyboard. Does anybody know how to get these other letters so that I can use only mnemonic keyboard? thanks
Typing with the ЙЦУКЕН keyboard seems much more standardized. I don't know about Apple computers, but on Linux distributions and Windows the very same keyboard layout is available. You might want to try learning it, instead, if you keep having trouble.
