Mobile Gear also allows you to assign the IME activation key to "Ctrl+Convert", but how do you do that?
It seems like Mobile Gear supports this at the keyboard driver level.
This seems to be a different method than the one used with TouchUpIME (and SmallTweak).

If you have assigned the IME activation key to "Ctrl+Convert" on Mobile Gear,
In TouchUpIME, set the IME startup key to the default "Kanji (Alt+Half/Full)"
