I found the post below a couple weeks ago and decided to change my default Greek font to a BibleWorks font so that my Professor using BW could read the greek text in papers I submit.

It came as something of a surprise to me this morning while working in my Interlinear Septuagint that I was unable to read the english in-line text. With a little effort I was able to figure out that the english text was still in English (sort of), just transliterated using greek font with the English words. When I went back into the program settings and reverted to Gentium I suddenly could read my interlinear again!

I know this isn't terribly important, but it would be kinda nice if at some point this was fixed so that those of us who want to use alternate fonts can do so and still have our Interlinear Septuagint.

This problem does not seem to impact any of my NT Greek Interlinears.

Without double checking at the moment Tim, I believe it is because the BW font is standard while the Logos fonts are Unicode.  BW has been slower in adopting unicode as a standard in part due to poor implementation on the part of various iterations of the Windows operating system.

Thanks for the reply. I certainly had not thought of that as a potential problem, but I really don't mess with fonts too much. I did a quick  look through BW site and they do confirm that they have not fully implemented Unicode and since I am using an older version that very well may be the problem.

You might be better off saving your documents as PDF so that the Greek font is guaranteed to come through.

Thanks for the suggestion. I have done that in the interim, but have been hoping to migrate to something that allows the entire review & scoring process to remain digital. PDF does not facilitate that nearly as easily as Word, no matter how rustrated I get with MS Office. However, if the issue is one of unicode use/compliance I suspect this may not get resolved any time before I graduate. :-)

Depending on your word processor, perhaps you could simply embed the fonts in the doc?  That will increase the file size of course.
