7.0 Fix: Misc Font Issues
Update: BibleWorks Executable (7.015g)
Date: 06/30/06 at 12:10:07
This patch contains the latest BibleWorks 7.0 program executable. It fixes several font problems: (1) Fixes a problem with Unicode export of NET Bible notes. Some characters that do not occur in typical Unicode fonts, like Fraktur P, though in bwgrkl, will be exported as non-Unicode using the same character in bwsupp. (2) a major rework of the way Hebrew accents are displayed is under way. There should be fewer overlaps now. NOTE: you will need to apply the latest font update. Then manually reinstall bwgrkl, bwhebb and bwsupp from the BibleWorks root directory.
This is a NOT a preview version. No access code is needed to download this patch.

Troubleshooting a Font Problem

From this description it would appear that the problem is with the font alone, and not with the computer or with BW. I am assuming that the BWHEBB font appears fuzzy wherever it occurs. (Search Window, Browse Window, Lexicon Window, etc.) Try copying some Heb text, using this font, into your word processor or copy-and-paste to another app where you can paste text to view it there. Do you get the same result?
If the problem persists, then obtain another copy of the TTF file to install to your PC. (You indicated that you reinstalled it. From what source did you do so?) Also, try the font in different type sizes. (Don't forget to designate the font set to which you are making changes.)
I hope that this helps to resolve the problem.
Highlighting Options in Editor?
I am having difficulty in choosing other highlight colors in the Editor, and I can't unhighlight portions that I highlighted yellow in attempting to open the highlighter utility that used to be in version 6. Does version 7 have a similar utility for the Editor that allows you to select various colors or make your own like before?
