Is it possible to note consonantal iota in the Helena font? I see digamma in the keyboard layout, but not this letter. I'm probably just overlooking it. Thanks in advance.

No, we have had no need for this until now. How would you want to represent it, with an inverted crcumflex under the iota? We do allow for a subdot and subcircle as shown in Accordance Fonts PDF. Or you could swirch the font to Rosetta which has the inverted rocker at option-m.

A circumflex under the iota should be fine. This approximates the mark LaSor manually adds in his Handbook of New Testament Greek (vol II, 13.16-13.163). Mounce's notation is similar but more "pointed" in his Morphology of Biblical Greek (e.g. 26.1-26.10). Your option-m suggestion in Rosetta is a helpful, immediate solution.

Thank you for considering this.
