I know I'm a little late in the game, but I recently upgraded to Accordance 12 (12.2.4). I teach Greek and N.T. Exegesis here in Brazil, and to make things smoother when cutting and pasting bits of text to my slides, I opted for using the Helena font in my Keynote presentation slides. Yesterday (March 9, 2018), for the first time since the upgrade, while typing a Greek word into a new slide, I noticed that the easy-to-use and -remember alt+1, alt+2, alt+3 no longer corresponding to the same accent/breath marks combinations of the previous version of Helena. Something as intuitive as alt+s for the final sigma had changed, too. While I don't necessarily understand the decision to change something that was so intuitive (maybe someone can explain this), I get that changes happen. The real problem is that since the Helena font kept the same name, and more importantly the same embedded font ID, and therefore the old can't coexist with the new.
Now it seems that because those keystrokes no longer correspond to the accents and/or letters in my slides, I have to choose between revising all the previous slides or reinstalling the old Helena font and getting really wonky results in all my Greek texts in Accordance.
Is there a workaround? Maybe Accordance could kindly release a retro Helena font with a different embedded font id, so that both can coexist peacefully on a Mac?
[Just to clarify, this is not the same issue as the installed font conflict I've seen in some other posts. I know the steps to open in safe mode, resolving those issues, etc. What I appear to be dealing with is that the newest Helena font (helena.otf) has different shortcut keys than the previous helena.ttf (and possibly helena.dfont; I'm not sure which is the oldest).]
