I have been trying to learn Hebrew for the past year or so.  I am going through another program where I am getting more vocabulary.  I am setting up vocabulary flash cards and they are working for me.  I am wanting to make my own lexicon from these words as well.  I just don't know how to type the Hebrew and the English on one line with dots connecting them. 

 

Hebrew...................................................................English translation

I would type everything from start to finish as that would give me another way to interface with the vocabulary.  That way I can organize everything myself.....it would be alphabetized of course and such.

To type the Hebrew I would suggest the Logos program Shibboleth. Then copy from Shibboleth into Word. By setting a tab with a "dot leader" you should be able to do this. Google "dot leader in Word" to get step by step instructions.

Shibboleth is available here - http://www.logos.com/shibboleth

David,

Thanks for the response.  I have a few additional questions.  I am using Libreoffice.  Is there an equivalent to dot leader in Word that does the same thing in LibreOffice?

Also I am use to typing in The Hebrew Keyboard.  is that the same thing as shibboleth?  I notice the text will become a mangal or something else but i can change it to SBL Hebrew and it seems to do what i  want. 

Does anyone know how to get a period in the be Keyboard my first interface with hebrew gave me the qal decenlsions and from that moment on it was the root only....for example  shin mem resh  is to guard or keep and aleph mem dalet is to stand....

I'm sorry, I am unfamiliar with LibreOffice. Another User said that cut and paste from Shibboleth works in OpenOffice so it MAY be possible.

Cutting and pasting from Shibboleth avoids some of the right to left and left to right issues of putting Hebrew into English word processing documents.

LibreOffice is supposed to work decently anyway, if you check the option for right-to-left languages. (Haven't yet tried it with Hebrew myself, but that's what others here say.)

LibreOffice 4 paragraph formatting has Tabs, which can have a fill character.

Order can be reversed, which places most significant letter next to dots:

Hebrew reads from right to left so most significant letter is on the right side.  Proverbs 31 has an alphabetic acrostic:

Proverbs 31 has 22 verses in alphabetic order.
