Welcome Smile

Logos does not provide Biblical Languages keyboard definitions for Mac.  Suggest reading forum Typing Ancient Languages since Mac OS X included couple Greek and Hebrew keyboard layouts.

Found an external web site that discusses Biblical Languages for PC & Mac => http://www.sbl-site.org/educational/BiblicalFonts_FAQ.aspx that has a downloadable Mac OS X Hebrew keyboard =>  http://www.sbl-site.org/Fonts/BiblicalHebrewKeyboardsInstallerOSX.zip  Also learned "Greek + Polytonic" keyboard included with Mac OS X is usable for Koine Greek.

Wiki page Logos 4 Mac has Need Logos 4 PC feature? section with tips for running Windows virtually on Mac, so could use Shibboleth for typing biblical languages (copy to clipboard shared with Mac, then paste into Logos 4 Mac).  Alternatively, could run Logos 4 in Windows virtual machine since Logos 4.2a on Mac lacks some Feature Parity items compared to Logos 4.2a on PC.

Basically Greek and Hebrew.  In the windows version I could type in Hebrew or Greek and do a search.

Does 'everywhere' include here?

If you don't have the keyboard icon on the top bar you can put it there from here.

 

You get your languages here.

I have been looking for the Greek keyboard as well for my Mac and have found the language and text input sources as illustrated by Mike, thanks.  Is there somewhere to obtain a picture of the Greek layout that I may see what keys are what Greek letters and how to do accents and breathing marks?

Hello James

Changing to your keyboard to Greek...

and then clicking on 'Show Keyboard Viewer' produces this window.

Whilst I remembered this from previous experience I have just checked and the same information could be obtained by typing.

'Greek Keyboard Layout Apple' into Google.

I think, on the Mac, he would be better off following my suggestion.

I find that simply using the built in Greek Polytonic keyboard in the "Input Sources" tab of the "Language and Text" system preference works just fine.  I've done searches with it in Logos and type my dissertation using it.  Times New Roman using the built in polytonic Greek keyboard looks pretty good and fits nicely in my text.  The regular Greek keyboard doesn't have breathing marks or many accents (it's designed around modern Greek).  The polytonic has them all.  There's really no reason to download special keyboards for Greek.  You can see my keyboards below.  I switch with the Command-Space key combination.  I got the Biblical Hebrew keyboard from SIL as the Hebrew keyboard built into the Apple is not designed around Biblical Hebrew.

One option is right click on a word in The Peshitta, click lemma, then click "A Compendious Syriac Dictionary"

Hi

Thanks for the tip, unfortunately the text I am studying is not in Peshitta. And I like it that while I am studying I can "test the dictionary", if I am not sure which radical is weak. Lemma tells it right away.

I think it works now with a separate keyboard layout. Stick out tongue

Sorry to revive an old thread, but I am confused about the SBL links referenced here. They look like they are for the PC keyboards. Does anyone have info about this? I referred my students to the SBL Hebrew keyboard because of its support for BH characters (e.g. maqqeph) and they are confused about character layout. I require them to type out exercises, so they need full support for BH characters.
