AN EVEN BETTER MACRO for BWGRKL-->UNICODE
I was just reminded that someone sent me a MSWord macro written by John Kendall for converting BWGRKL text into Unicode Palatino Linotype.
Well now John has just posted an even better macro than the one he sent me months ago! (See the next post!) This macro is much better than the one I posted earlier as it "picks out" what text in any document is Bwgrkl.ttf and converts it, leaving the rest of your document change free! It also catches errors and marks them with "marching red ants!"
Thanks Mark! :D
Thanks John! :D
I have removed the old version. Go to the next post to download the new version!
Time saving features? Not always
And problem solved. Now if only I knew why they called them smart quotes :rolleyes:
not-so-smart quotes mess up Hebrew too
I first ran into the smart quotes problem with Hebrew! Whenever I'd go to type a pathach, I'd get some form of gibberish that I didn't intend. You have to keep this in mind when you have "auto capitalization" on as well. For instance, a lowecase "a" is an aleph, but an uppercase "a" is a holem-vav.
One day, when Unicode is the completely accepted standard by everyone on all computers...as if it will ever happen...this won't be an issue...as much...
I'm sure that there will be some form of "auto-correct" that will stand in our way then as well!:rolleyes:
