Fields placed in the layout can have input methods, but I can't find it in InspectorPro7.

Since FileMaker 19.3.2 and later, the behavior of fields with input methods has changed (it is a silent change not announced by Claris), so it is very important for Japanese users to be able to see and find the “inputMode” parameters.

I found an “inputMode” parameter in DDR’s FieldObj.

Claris Pro and FileMaker Pro Help|Setting the text input method for fields

I have looked into the correlation between the input method setting values and the inputMode code output by DDR.
Set input method Parameters in DDR

"Automatic" inputMode="0"
"Synchronize with field's language" inputMode="128"
"Roman" inputMode="130"
"Hiragana" inputMode="131"
"Full-width Katakana" inputMode="132"
"Full-width Alphanumeric" inputMode="133"
"Half-width Katakana" inputMode="134"
"Half-width Alphanumeric" inputMode="135"

    Hello Satsuki,

    when you run an analysis, make sure to check gather extra information.

    Then when you are looking at the analysis select extra info and you should see layout object input mode.

    I have attached some screen shots for you hope that this helps... and yes we should add it as something you can search on.

    Thank you.
