I also assume Hebrew will have the same issues but I haven't tried.

RTL as in mirroring the UI (I am a native Arabic speaker so I know what RTL is) but I am not sure what's meant by it in this context ?
It as discussed with sailors on IRC, as well there is difference between browser and system. I have sailfish on n950 and mails with hebrew do not display any hebrew :\

I can write Arabic fine (Did not try much) so there is still something I don't understand.

The issue with Hebrew is seems to be related to the Arabic issue too.

Droid sans hebrew and droid sans arabic are both being "merged" into droid sans family by fontconfig. Silica uses another font which is assigned explicitly via font.fontFamily

I noticed that arabic shows fine if I install another font OR if I remove the fontconfig family merging XML snippet.

I am yet to understand why this is happening. If someone can dig then please do too

Seems I have missed that discussion. Who did you talk to?

I am not surprised here because browser does its own rendering

i think it was "special"
We were told that there is ticket for that, as well as arabic would be little bit more difficult than hebrew coz of kerning (i'm noobie so not sure what is what and who is who )

If you want to switch quick between two layouts, insert this
Code:
        KeyBase {
            Image{
                source: "globe.png";
                anchors.centerIn: parent;        
            }
            onClicked: {canvas.layoutRow.switchLayout(0); canvas.updateIMArea()}
            width: punctuationKeyWidthNarrow
        }
in your spacebar row in both layouts you want. Don't forget to change the number to your target layout in each one.

I'm sure it can be automated so that it can be inserted once in the SpaceBarRow.qml and toggle between any two layouts, but it works for me as is, so I'm leaving the better implementation as an exercise for the reader :-P

What did you use to edit the layouts.conf file? I copied the file across to the phone's "documents" folder and tried to open it with a text editor from the PC without success...

?!? layouts.conf is simple unix text file. I use Linux on PC, I am happy... Same end of line, same UTF-8 code base.

PS: i hate when people say something as "I use PC" without OS specification. Not, for me not PC==Windows. PC is HW for many OS.

Now I create Czech qwerty layout with two deadkeys, near same as I have on N9/Harmattan. I found bug in 'AccentedCharacterKey.qml'. Or I don't know how is right way to define deadKeysAccents for more then one deadkey.

I make little patch:

Code:
 
//  original code - i don't know what is mean .. 
//    property string _accentedText: _deadAccentIndex > -1 && !keyboard.inSymView ? _deadKeyAccents.substr(_deadAccentIndex*2+1, 1) : ""

//  code for definition  deadKeyAccents: "ˇě"
//    property string _accentedText: _deadAccentIndex > -1 && !keyboard.inSymView ? _deadKeyAccents.substr(_deadAccentIndex+1, 1) : ""

//  code for definition  deadKeyAccents: "ˇě"
property string _accentedText: _deadAccentIndex > -1 && !keyboard.inSymView ? _deadKeyAccents.substr((_deadKeyAccents.length/2)+_deadAccentIndex, 1) : ""
https://together.jolla.com/question/...n-one-deadkey/

Second version Czech qwertz & qwerty vkb with two deadkeys here as example
(second release with own files to avoid collision with originals):

Look at Screenshots

Put to dir /usr/share/maliit/plugins/com/jolla this:
- AccentedCharacterKey2.qml patched for more then one deadkey
- DeadKey2.qml with better recognition on layout.

Put to dir /usr/share/maliit/plugins/com/jolla/layouts this:
- cz.qml
- cz_qwerty.qml
- 1_custom_czech.conf file (no need to edit original layouts.conf, maliit load any .conf file in this dir).

Edit 2014-01-15: fixed cz layout and move some spec chars in both layouts .. improved DeadKey look.
Edit 2014-01-22: created own *2.qml files to avoid conflict with original, created own 'layout.conf'.

Edit: 2014-01-31: fixed cz.qml (qwertz) layout to proper use AccentedCharacterKey2.qml (fixed version).
Bug for more deadkeys still not fixed in update 1.0.3.8.
