i am in the process of learning hebrew and would like to type my notes in the editor window in both english and hebrew, and then copy them to word and save them. i can type in hebrew in the command line, but i can't do it in the editor window, and my question is, is it possible to type either hebrew or greek, and if so how do i do it?



God Bless.

There are two basic ways to do this: Keyboard shortcuts: type Ctrl+h to turn the Hebrew font on, Ctrl+g for Greek, and Ctrl+d to turn the Latin (English) font back on. Keep in mind that in switching from Hebrew to Latin characters, you will need to move your cursor to the end of the line before you can resume typing English. Right-click menu: right click the editor, and you will find that a menu pops up with the first choice being "Font." Click the "Font" menu choice and you will get a list of fonts to choose from. This also provides a list of all of the keyboard shortcuts that you can use for Cyrillic, the Hebrew Transliteration font, etc.
