OS X 10.5 Leopard: Fix for Missing Input Menu Setting

For some reason, Leopard no longer has the setting previously found in OS X in System Preferences/International/Input Menu for "Allow a different input source for each document." This is badly missed by many who need to have different keyboards active in different apps and don't want to constantly have to switch the layout. A possible fix is the app InputSwitcher. Instructions are in the ReadMe contained in the download.

Thank you. That was one of the most annoying "features" of Leopard. I regularly found myself typing and sending instant messages using wrong layout. Now it's OK!

too bad it will not work in firefox and other non-coaco based apps.

any idea why Apple made this stupid change in Leopard?
