Don't get me wrong.  There is a lot to love with Logos 4, but I am getting a bit frustrated in attempting to do simple tasks that I have taken for granted in logos 3, and finding it completely different for Logos 4!

In Logos 3, if I want to change my typing font to Greek, all I had to do was switch the fonts in the task bar, use a hot key (ALT-F2).  But this is not working for Logos 4!

I've looked on the forums, but to no avail.

Someone please help!

it looks like you have already viewed this post

It sounded like the 2nd poster had a program in which you could have the Alt-2 key turn on Greek typing.

Not sure this helps

Shibboleth is a great tool, but I am referring to the feature that allows you to type in Greek or Hebrew font inside Logos itself.

How do you do a word study on PANTOKRATWR if you cannot type it in Greek?

I am working hard at not coming across in an obnoxious manner, but all my years working with Logos, I am feeling like a real noob because I am finding it difficult to do the simplest things.

John, you have two options.

  1. Use g: or h: in Search, Bible Word Study, or Command Bar lookups.
  2. Use the Windows multi-language support with our keyboards, which will work anywhere in Logos 4 and in any other program like Word.

Today's blog post addresses the first option.

Here are two other threads on the issue:

Logos (rightly in my view) switched from a proprietary system in Logos 3. Now we can use existing (and better) Windows solutions for typing Greek/Hebrew, plus the very cool transliteration feature fill has mentioned.

Richard's earlier post explains the simplest way of doing it: http://community.logos.com/forums/p/2341/17700.aspx#17700

If you want even more flexibility, you can read this article: http://www.tyndalehouse.com/Fonts/Unicode.htm

Remember these apply to any program, not just Logos.

Phil, I had the Logos keyboards installed on my previous OS and loved them. However, I have not been able to get it to work since installing Windows 7. I know I can use the Windows modern Gr & Heb keyboards, but these are unfamiliar. The transliteration feature is likewise a bit clunky once one has gotten used to typing in the original languages. Is there a way to get the Logos keyboards to work with Win7? Please Help! Thanks in advance!

Josh, if you install the Logos keyboards. You still have to select them as the defaults in Win 7.
