I think I downloaded (not all) the fonts I thought that would help.  I need to know what I need to download so that the Hebrew verse numbers are on the right side of the page, and words both in Logos 5(6) are not divided.

What download will take care of this?

Hi pastor Dan, 

I think you continue the thread from over there https://community.logos.com/forums/t/122672.aspx - and I'm not sure I can help you further. If you downloaded the fonts you want to use (which would include all from Faithlife, at least LogosSymbolUnicode for the apparatus markers, and probably SBL Greek, SBL Hebrew [and SBL BibLit for good measure, since it supports Greek, Hebrew and Latin script in one font] and all from SIL or so) and properly installed them according to the instructions on the bottom of the page then - after restarting your word processor, or better: your machine, you should be fine as far as Faithlife (Logos, Verbum) is concerned. 

Unfortunately I don 't read Hebrew at all - and from the version 2016 you gave for Word it seems you're running on a Mac. If that's true, you'll need to have someone with a comparable configuration to tell you what is even possible on your system (I understand from other forum posts that Mac text processing software is often challenged to support right-to-left languages - it seems only a product called "Mellel" is fully capable to do it like users expect it to work).

Maybe you could make a screenshot of what you are seeing and someone else can figure out if there's anything you need to do, or if you reached what can be accomplished.

Is Mick correct that you are using a Mac? If so, the problem may be with MS Word rather than Logos. I don't have Office 2016—took me less than an hour to request a refund—but that's another story. My experience is with MS Word 2011.which will handle Hebrew text—sort of.

Word 2016 probably continues the tradition of previous versions in that it does not recognize SBL Hebrew as a font. Thus I use Ezra SIL as my Hebrew font. Also, placing Hebrew and English text on the same line requires a bit of planning and work arounds.

If this describes your problem, just ask, and I will be glad to supply additional information.

No, that was a wrong conjecture, Dan is on a PC

I have found the Print Screen button on my keyboard, but I don't know how to use it.  Do I hit the PrtScr button, but then what do I do, to get the Hebrew from Microsoft Windows Word 2016 to shot up in the forum?

Print Screen is the most uncomfortable way to do that (it would work, though. You could paste the screen into a word document, save the document file and post that as an attachment here, using the paperclip icon).

Much better: use Snipping Tool (which comes with the Windows OS), you can specify the interesting area on your screen, highlight/markup something and then save as PNG. The PNG-file you attach to your post with the paperclip icon and it becomes a visible picture in your post.

What I did was cut the Hebrew portion out of my Word 2016 document, and then pasted it back in, and it came back perfect.  I have no idea how that happened.  But thanks be to God:  His Wisdom (even in computers) is greater than ours!

Great to hear that!
