I want to export or copy to clipboard or to editor or what-have-you Greek text without accents, and not an entire database, but only a range of verses.

Is there a way to do this?

Unfortunately, not for Greek. Hebrew, yes, but not for Greek.

A work-around is to first export the entire Greek database, search-and-replace on the accent characters, then recompile the database. Then you can export the Greek text without the accents.

Hope this helps.

Thanks, Glenn. That's actually a pretty simple work-around.

I've exported and recompiled four Greek databases without accents. They are SCR to SCX, STE to STX, BYZ to BYX, GNT to GNX.

I use these unaccented databases as a base for manuscript collation, and I can't think of any other reason why someone would need them, but they're available now in any case.

Accordingly, I have these in a zip file, but it's too large (approximately 1.2 MB) to upload here, so if someone who keeps the master list wants to post this file, email me and I'll send it to you.
