Oh well. I was afraid you were going to say that. I think the help needs to be clarified. It certainly implies that you can load Greek and Hebrew on HTML import. See screenshot

OK, good news and bad news!
Good News: Unicode and MacRoman import of Yehudit and Helena is fully supported in the user tools:

This was done using your provided attached file, no changes.
Bad News: There's a bug (since about 9.5, maybe 9.4) preventing this. I've fixed it for the next release, but you'll have to wait until 10.3.2 to get your greek and hebrew user tool import working again. (If you really need it ASAP, you could message me the files, and I'll import the tool for you using the early build).

The conversion to unicode was rather easier than I thought. There was not much Hebrew in Poole and I wrote a macro to convert the Greek. That means Poole is now ready to load. All I am waiting for now is 10.3.2.

Yes there is news. 10.3.2 does import unicode correctly (on Mac - not on Windows), however there are some issues with the Hebrew. The Greek imports OK from a Word produced HTML file but the Hebrew has caused me a lot of issues. Word on Mac is hopeless but Word on Windows is at least consistent. I thought I had solved it all but then realised that the word order was reversed on import. I am just loading up what I hope will be the final version of Poole today (I've had to reverse letter order because of Word and now I have to reverse the word order because of HTML so that it loads up matching the original file.) There is not much Hebrew in Poole to be honest and only a few places where there is more than one word at a time but I am using it to test a large import. If this works correctly then I will load up what I hope will be the final version of Gill.
Nearly there. Once it is done then getting it onto Accordance Exchange will take a bit of time.
If you want a copy prior to that then send me a personal message and I can arrange to give you access to a shared dropbox folder to download them - Hopefully today for Poole and possibly tomorrow for Gill.

At last! I have created the user tools for both Poole and Gill now. I will contact Ken in order to get these across to the Accordance Exchange. You should be aware that there is an issue with searching in Gill. This may be to do with the size of the user tool - it seems to stop highlighting hits after a certain point in the tool. I will raise it as a bug to see if that might be the problem.
Just as an update - I have split Gill into Old and New Testament which solves the searching problem.

That's fine Ken. I thought you were unavailable until December anyway. I will contact you after the 4th. Have a good time.
