I use Macbook Air. Since updated to OS X Mountain Lion, I don't seem to be able to input Chinese using Pinyin with tones, both in Simplified and Traditional versions. For example to type "蘋果電腦“, I used to type ping2guo3dian4nao3 <space> to get that, but in the new OS, pingguodiannao<space> to get that. I like tones because tones can narrow down the subsets of choices for Chinese characters during typing. In general, that should speed up typing Chinese. Also, it's a better way for me to learn Mandarin tones are essential part of the language.


Not sure I missed some settings so this is still available in the new OS...


Thank you.
