Yeah, and it does now - it automatically updates.

Sure. Even with the current design there is no special button - the
update is automatic. But it is just in another tab:(

Well, unfortunately some details of the layout are really better
represented when they are shown. For Russian, it is punctuation
characters which matters - their placement is very different in
different variants so it is better to see the layout in order to find
whether it is "yours" or not. Just "default" or "winkeys" gives little
information on this subject.

Of course.
