You could cancel ru'o with lo'a, ga'e with to'a, and ce'a italik. bu

how is
only one shift to be cancelled when several are effective?  e.g., if i'm using russian and italics and capitalization, how do i cancel just the italics and capitalization without cancelling the russian?  or do i have to reactivate all the shifts i still want after each time i cancel?
