In the search results for LHB, Hebrew letters that contain both a dagesh and an accent mark display a second "crazy little dot" instead of the accent mark. I assume this is the same bug I reported in 2015 in this post.

Hi Reuben,

I talked with the developers, and we rely on the text renderer built into the OS. I'm running 10.14.2 and the text is displayed correctly.

FWIW, this bug does not appear on my stable branch of Logos (8.1 SR-1). Something new?

This is a macOS issue, and dependant upon the OS version you are running.

Thanks for the reply, Philana. Could you verify for me that this differs with the situation of displaying the text in the actual resource? The resource text displays correctly for me, but the search results text doesn't.

She's saying if you update your MacOS the problem goes away.

Yes, this is correct.

The resource display uses custom glyph shaping and positioning code; the search (and other panels) uses the OS’ built-in text rendering.

Thanks for the clarification, Bradley.

This reminded me of this thread and I sure thought you had said something like "anything could be done, after all, it's all just pixels on a screen". but for the life of me, I can't find that post (in any thread). Did you delete it?! 😉

Hmm, that does sound like something I might say, but I don't recall where I might have posted it (and a quick Google search doesn't turn anything up).

There it is! Now why couldn't Google find that?! (Bradley, "pixels on a screen") should have brought that back as the first hit and definitely didn't.

I think it would be technically possible to do (I mean, anything’s possible, it's “just” pixels on a screen, right? Smile), but it would be complex
