Now, when the official SailfishOS Version for Gemini PDA is slowly coming to a release, i ask me how we can switch layouts on the geminipda HW-Keyboard?

For the virtual keyboard thats pretty easy, you can drag horizontally to switch layout. For the Hardware Keyboard SailfishOS has an option Active Layout, which can be set in the System Settings. But thats not very userfriendly to every time in the keyboard-settings to switch the layout. Is it possible to define a shortcut for this?

Many international users (like me) works with more than one layout. Primary i work with 2 latin (EN/GER) and 2 cyrillic (UA/RU) layouts. Thats can also be essential for users who use Hebrew, Arabic, Chinese or Japanese layouts as all other non-latin layouts.

That would be very cool, if we got an shortcut here....
