Bug Description

This is a feature request for a wish list.

Often i forget to switch keyboard layouts before launching Do and end up in front of Do's prompt in Russian layout, while my system's language is English. (I haven't tested Do with Russian as system's language.)

While the Do's prompt is open, keyboard layout switching hot keys do not work (in my case it interprets them as input and starts suggesting something). I have to close the prompt, switch the layout to English, and launch Do again.

I think there are different solutions to this problem that would make Do more usable with multiple layouts:

  * make layout switching hot keys work when the prompt is open, or

  * add a preference to always temporally switch the layout to a give one, or

  * perform search for all layouts simultaneously and combine the results.
