Also happens with scim-pinyin apparently.

Comment 2 Jens Petersen 2006-11-29 04:20:30 UTC
I guess this is related to scim-bridge since the sense that
we have gtkimm-clear-preedit-on-reset-174143.patch in our scim package.

Should we modify scim-bridge to do the same?

As it stands this coincides with upstream's preedit behaviour.

Comment 3 Jens Petersen 2006-11-29 06:26:47 UTC
See bug 174143 for the scim case.

Comment 4 Caius Chance 2006-11-29 06:51:47 UTC
FYI, Chewing's behavior has been changed to "clearing" by me, after upstream's

IMHO, as Chang Jie is currently not be used with long preedit during inputting
(i.e. the frequency that users commit characters in preedit is relatively high),
it doen't not very make sense to keep preedit after focus out and in.

Comment 5 Peng Huang 2006-11-29 07:12:01 UTC
IMO, keeping preedit string after focus out is complex, maybe it will make users
I think commiting preedit string or clearing it are more appropriate.

Comment 7 Caius Chance 2007-03-19 06:19:20 UTC
Built & sent patch to upstream.

This is good to push to FC6.
