Copy/Pasting Hebrew Font in Microsoft Word
Posted 19 October 2010 - 01:48 PM
Before I updated the Accordance software to 9.0.4, I was able to copy and paste the Hebrew font (Yehudit) onto Microsoft Word (Mac 2008) with relative ease.
Now the fonts are coming off weird, having barely any semblance to the actual Hebrew text.
Currently, I'm highlighting the text, clicking "Print", then going to "Print Preview" and copying the text from that page to Microsoft Word.
I was wondering if there is a solution so that I can go back to copying and pasting Yehudit directly to Microsoft Word (Mac 2008) without the Hebrew text being misaligned and different? Thank you!

Is this something that running Font Fixer might help?

Geeze that sounded so geeky, but then, that's what we do, isn't it!

I'm still having problems with this reverse pasting in Microsoft Word (2011), despite using the unicode option in Accordance 10.3.1. What am I doing wrong?

you're not doing anything wrong. It's a limitation of Word on Mac. It chokes on rtl text.
If you are serious about doing rtl work you really need Mellel (my personal favourite) or Nisus Writer Pro. Bot of which hnad RTL perfectly. Word on Windows supports RTL, but not Word on Mac. (Who knows what Office 2014 Mac will bring...)
Honestly, get Mellel (and it's very cheap). It's a bit different to Word, so there's a learning curve but it is far superior for language work (and it exports in Word, PDF and RTF formats).

I rarely use Word, in part because I find it distracting and there are better options available. But sometimes I have to use it.
So I installed Windows 7 on Parallels, which runs, and installed Office for 2010 Windows on Parallels. So far so good. Enabled Hebrew on Windows.
Copy & paste worked once, to my annoyance not again, because the paste options are not displayed in Office 2010. I can only copy plain text without formatting. This appears to be a bug under Windows. The common advice is to disable "click skype for call" to retrieve the lost paste options. However, I do not have Skype installed, so this advice does not work for me. Anyone else with an idea?
