I've downloaded & installed BW Hebrew Fonts. Where is there a keyboard map or cover to put on your keyboard so you know which key to push. Or does everone get separate greek, hebrew, & native_language keyboards?

Don't worry to much they take a little time to get used to.
Bibleworks font maps are fairly intuitive or at least they seem to be phonetic. Their font maps are provided on the following link, http://www.bibleworks.com/fonts.html and you could print them out and use them till you become comfortable with the layout.

Alternatively (if you’re using WindowsXP),

you could turn on and use the on screen keyboard
http://www.microsoft.com/enable/training/windowsxp/oskturnonuse.aspx

“On–Screen Keyboard is an accessibility utility that displays a virtual keyboard on the computer screen that allows people with mobility impairments to type data by using a pointing device or joystick. Besides providing a minimum level of functionality for some people with mobility impairments, On–Screen Keyboard can also help people who do not know how to type. This procedure tells you how to turn on and use On–Screen Keyboard.”

If you are using Bibleworks8 it you can simply:
(1)go to the tools menu
(2)select interface/settings
(3)select the Bibleworks keyboard or
Keyboard layouts

Also, in the Bible works editor you can type in Unicode and use the native Greek or Hebrew maps or Bibleworks' phonetic layout.

Hope that helps.
Grace and peace,
