Hi. I've been working on taking a Russian Bible text and transforming it into a Mac Roman format that utilizes a font to transform it back into Russian characters. So the use of the specific font is essential. I am really excited about getting this finished soon. The only lack of functionality is in the search field. It would be GREAT to have the ability to link the font of the text to the font of the search field in a User Bible the same way that the original language fonts are linked to the search field. Is this a possible addition in future upgrades? THANKS FOR ALL YOU DO!

Well, yes, this isn't a bug. Accordance doesn't allow you to change the font in the search entry box. You are really asking for a new feature here, support for Russian Bibles, which we do hope to implement

I can move this to another forum if you wish.

Thank you, Helen! You can just close this. I'll add it over in the right place.

I have figured out that it IS possible to create a User Bible in the Russian language if I utilize a Western font that mimics the Russian keyboard layout. I am working on transforming all the Russian text into Mac Roman format that utilizes such a font to transform it back into Russian characters.

The only lack of functionality is in the search field. It would be GREAT to have the ability to link the font of the text to the font of the search field in a User Bible the same way that the original language fonts are linked to the search field. Is this a possible addition in future upgrades? The only problem is that this unique font utilizes * and ? (for example) as regular characters. The functionality of these might need to be changed or removed... anyway.....

THANKS FOR ALL YOU DO!
