This may not be a bug, so please move this post as appropriate.

I noticed in the instant details box that there are some strange characters appearing alongside Greek words. A text conversion issue? Is there a fix down the road for this? Or is this a Zondervan issue?Attached File  Picture_2.jpg   304.34KB   65 downloads

This is simply the usual font issue, and you can download the Font Fixer to correct it.

I have upgraded to Accordance 7.0.3, and I have used the Font Fixer, but unfortunately it has not fixed the problem with the Greek font. The Greek text of the LXX and GNT all appear as meaningless combinations of letters and symbols. I have attached a sample of John 1:1. Does anyone know how to fix this, or should I go back to Accordance 6?

Read the Accordance Fonts PDF for help in solving this, or if all else fails call tech support!

Throwing in my $.02

Sometimes the Font Fixer doesn't. But if you follow the directions in the pdf regarding Font Book, you can disable and enable the various fonts and find the right ones. The pdf is very helpful, and works where the Font Fixer falls short. Just a word to the frustrated...
