I'm using the BibleWorks Greek font that is available for download. My problem is that I do not know how to quickly insert a simple circumflex into the text of my document. Is their a keystroke that inserts it? Many thanks for your help.

There is a complete chart of the BW Greek and Hebrew keystrokes here --

If you're typing in MSWord, be aware that you will need to turn "smart quotes" off while typing many of the special characters needed for Greek and Hebrew accenting and vowel pointing. When I used to use Word, I set up macros to turn off smart quotes and select the Greek or Hebrew font, one each for Greek and Hebrew. Then I had one for returning to normal font, which selected the "Normal" font and turn the smart quotes back on. I used F6 for Greek, F7 for Hebrew, and F8 for return to normal.

Another option is to start using Unicode fonts in your documents--you can copy and paste Unicode Greek from BibleWorks (see the help files Chapter 30 | Set Up Options | Font Options | Activating Unicode Export for Hebrew and Greek).
