Hello,

 

I like the key mappings that Accordance has worked out for their fonts.  The problem I face though, is that when I need to change from Helena to Yehudit to Sylvanus, I need to go up and use the pull-down menu from within my user notes.

 

My solution to this has been to use the Sophokeys keyboard (http://www.sourcecod.com/sophokeys/) for the greek and the Antinoou keyboard (http://www.evertype.com/fonts/coptic/) for the uncial greek (coptic).  And I have no keyboard for the hebrew to fast-switch.

 

So this leads me to my request:  Could the Accordance developers make a mac os X keyboard for the helena, Sylvanus and Yehudit fonts?  This would provide a great solution to all my font switching issues.

 

Now, I don't know what is entailed in making a keyboard layout.  But I thought it was worth a suggestion and feature request.

 

Thanks,


Pastor Steve Bauer

If I understand your question correctly, you can build your own custom keylayouts using SIL's free program Ukelele. You can tweak an existing layout (included in the download) or build a new one from scratch. Once you place in the Keylayouts folder, it will appear in your list of Language & Text Input Sources. The guide is pretty helpful.

It took time to figure it out.  But your suggestion seems to be a good one.  I'm slowly figuring out how to use Ukelele.

 

thanks for the suggestion, A.D.
