When I right click on Notepad, there come up options for right-to-left languages. But at the end exists an option "Reconversion". I have installed a Japanese LIP and it seems like I have got hold of the "Open IME" option above it. An inline change of characters from English to Japanese happens. From whatever I have read in official MSDN sources, it looks like "Reconversion" is related to it and is used to change the character chosen for the English source characters.

Now my question is, why is "Reconversion" always greyed out in notepad? To generate a list of characters, I simply typed a space before a list of characters popped down. Wasn't that the supposed function of "Reconversion"? If not, why is it really there in the list?
