I have been migrating my favorite version of Calvin institutes from PDF to Word DOCX to Logos PBB.

I am about 80% through book 1.

Moving  PDF text to Word works great the Greek displays properly no problems.

However Logos mangles the Greek when I compile the Word Docx file. I noticed that both Word and Logos support a number of common Greek fonts but not the Koine Medium font the pdf used. I suspect that the font used is a True type font what needs to be converted. Where the Greek references represent only maybe 1% or 2% of the total text. It makes sense to clear away the mangled text and just reenter the text in one of the commonly supported Greek fonts. I have 2 questions

Which of the common fonts will work the best?

How do I determine which keys to map to which greek characters?

You will want to use one of the Unicode fonts (ex: SBL Greek). If you search the forums, I believe there is a macro for Windows that can find the Greek substitute the font for the correct one.

I have made some significant progress solving this problem.

I have added the Microsoft Polytonic Greek keyboard support  to my PC. I have been able to correct the all the greek references to the footnotes to book one. but I have one small problem. I can create acute & grave marks rough and smooth breathing marks however I have not been able to create circumflex marks that will appear over the vowels any one know how to do this.

I don't know how well this exports to PBBs, but it does handle all my Greek Keyboard input in Word.

For the circumflex character, I think you want the left square bracket [.

For example, left square bracket plus "v" in Greek Polytonic gives you an omega with a circumflex.

] + v

To add the iota subscript, use the RIGHT ALT key.  This only works with the right ALT key, not the left one.  So right ALT key + left square bracket + v gives you an omega with a circumflex and an iota subscript.

LEFT ALT + ] + v

For a full list, try the chart on page 15 of the following Microsoft documentation.

Enjoy!
