      Steps to Reproduce

      1. Open a notecard
      2. Select Hiragana input source from input menu on right of menu bar
      3. Type 'k', then Input Window comes up containing underlined 'k' like snapshot_1.jpg

      See bellow to setup Japanese input environment.

      Actual Behavior

      Input Window comes up like snapshot_1.jpg

      Expected Behavior

      We expect underlined 'k’ in the notecard instead of Input Window like snapshot_2.jpg

      Other information

      This issue is OSX specific.
      On notecard, we always get Input Window.
      On chat or IM, usually get it, sometimes not.
      We always get Input Window on internal web browser but it is cased by lack of language text input support on media control UI, not by this issue.
      I will post the issue of media control UI later(it is not OSX specific).

      In case of CONVERSATIONS panel has focus but the focus not in chat or IM input field, Input Window comes up.
      It is another issue of focusable UI items, I don’t research it yet but will post it later(I think it’s not OSX specific too).

      To setup Japanese input on Mavericks:
      1. Open System Preferences
      2. Click 'Keyboard'
      3. Click 'Input Source' tab
      4. Click add input source button on bottom left of the panel
      5. Search Japanese in the items and click it
      6. Click Kotoeri Input Source
      7. Click Add button
      8. Check "Show Input menu in menu bar" on
      9. Close System Preferences
      After that, you can select Input source from Input menu on right of menu bar.

      To Setup the Language bar in Windows 7:
      1. Control Panel->appearance and Personalization->Fonts->Text Services and Input Language (bottom left corner of the window)
      2. Click the Add button to choose the Japanese language.
      3. Click Ok
      4. Launch the viewer
      5. Click the "EN" button in the Windows System Tray
      6. Choose "JP" from the contextual menu.

      This issue is one of 7 issues related language text input on SL Viewer.
      4 issues are only on OSX, provided in version 3.6.5, Cocoa merge.
      I will post those 4 issues and upload patches.
      I hope these patches are applied soon and make Japanese/Chinese/Korean Mac users happy.
      The rest 3 issues?
      I will think them later.
