Language bar not displaying despite multiple languages

    Language bar not displaying despite multiple languages

    Problem 1) The language bar isn't displaying.

    I have 3 languages installed and need to be able to switch between them.

    Problem 2) But right now I am only able to type with American English input - I want to get rid of this layout completely but it keeps returning after I remove it.

    Proof that the languages are installed:

    As often happens when I post here, I found the answer myself...
    Uninstalling the languages and then reinstalling them made the Language bar appear.
    Can't seem to get rid of the US English though, but that's just a minor annoyance.

    In your picture, under Advanced Settings in the top left, there's some check boxes for the language bar and changing the activation keys about half-way down the page.
    If you remove a language via Options -> Remove, do you remember to click on Save at the bottom of the page?
