Hi,

I'm using BW5 in Parallels for Mac OS. Graeca doesn't match the Mac OS so... I tried to adjust the Greek font settings into SPionic, but it doesn't work out that well (See screenshot attached). Can somebody help me out with this? Which other fonts can I use as well in WinXP as in Max OSX?

Andy,

If I'm understanding what you did this isn't a problem with XP and Mac. The problem is that you've set BibleWorks to use a non-BibleWorks Greek font. BibleWorks is not compatible with any fonts other than the BibleWorks Greek and Hebrew fonts (bwgrkl and bwhebb). BibleWorks will, however, allow you to have the Greek and Hebrew text you export to you word processor documents transferred in a different font. That is, you can use the BibleWorks fonts within BibleWorks but use a different Greek or Hebrew font in your word processor.

See the following two FAQs for more info:

1. Using non-BibleWorks Greek or Hebrew fonts (http://www.bibleworks.com/forums/showthread.php?t=304)
2. Unicode support in BibleWorks 7 (http://www.bibleworks.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1610)

I hope that helps.
