7. Language bar functions

8. extended support

you should be able to type in most applications. For the older/simplier ones that doesn't support, turn on extended support in text service advanced tab.

MSPY supposed to support intonation also, not exactly sure how you can use this features. Some undocumentated key you can use to filter out 1,2,3,4,5 th tones after entering pinyin maybe?
