I created a custom keyboard layout using the layout creator. This is an AZERTY/French layout with Polish characters added:
I don't know what the terminology is, but as you can see, I can select a "keyboard language" by clicking on the "FR" button, and once I'm in French mode, select if I want the default French or custom layout by clicking on the keyboard icon next to it. Let's call that a "sub layout".
My problem: I'm constantly finding that the keyboard has switched back to the French sub-layout from my custom franco-polish one. I'm not sure if this is because I accidentally hit the shortcut (Ctrl+Shift) or because it keeps switching back to the default layout, but it's a constant annoyance. In any case, I don't seem to have a problem with accidentally switching languages (English, French, Russian), just my two french sub-layouts.
Going into my input settings, I can see that my custom franco-polish layout is classified under "French":
As you can see in the right hand window, the default "French" layout is bolded and cannot be deleted/unchecked. I wish I could just get rid of it! I never use it, I only use my custom layout.
My question: Is there any way I can end up with my custom layout as the only sub-layout in the "French" category? I thought I might be able to create an entirely new language category called "French (Custom)" or something and put it in there, but I don't see an option like that in the layout creator.
