input menu options
Posted 05 July 2006 - 10:23 AM
In System Preferences -> International -> Input Menu tab we're given various keyboard layout options.
Greek has 2 options, "Greek" and "Greek Polytonic." I think "Greek" is for modern Greek whereas "Greek Polytonic" is for NT/Koine Greek.
Hebrew has 2 options as well. "Hebrew" and "Hebrew-QWERTY." When/why would one use one over the other? Same question for English between "U.S." and "U.S. Extended."
My 2 main apps are Accordance and Mellel. I'm trying to get a better handle on using these 2 apps with frequent copy-paste between them. And it occurred to me it wouldn't hurt to better understand the Input Menu options. Thanks.

I have never gotten used to the OS X Hebrew (=Israeli) layout, so I always use the Hebrew-QWERTY layout in Mellel (and Mail). I don't type that much Greek, but there are other options for entering classical Greek on the Mac. You can use SophoKeys, for example, which is based on the TLG Beta Code standard.
Note that Accordance has an option to use the Israeli Hebrew layout in the Greek & Hebrew Preferences.
