I use Intelligent Pinyin Keyboard with
ibus in Ubuntu to input Chinese characters into my document.
input-method is designed in such a way that one starts typing the characters that correspond to the
pinyin associated with a character, and then it can select from a list of characters the one that matches the request.
As shown in the previous example, for each combination of
arabic characters there is a long list of potential Chinese characters that might match it. This list of characters may correspond to
xue pronounced with several kinds of tones, e.g.
I would like to be able to use the the tone number to further filter out the list of Characters that is being presented to me, so that the length of the list shrinks as a whole and it is easier to go through it. e.g. If I type
yi1, I would like to see only those characters matching exactly that
pinyin and tone.
Unfortunately, it is impossible to do so, because pressing any
0 causes the input method to choose one of the listed examples.
Is there any other
patch or a different configuration that can help me achieve my goal?
Note that I don't want to get
pinyin text as a result (as asked in similar questions on this site), but the Chinese Characters.
