    Hi Phil,
    It looks like the problem here is with your auto-format as you type settings in Word. For the accents to work properly in BWGRKL, one must turn off the "Turn Quotes into Smart Quotes" settings off. Otherwise, it will change a simple apostrophe into a right-apostrophe and a simple quotation mark into a right-quotation mark. Hence, it looks like a smooth breathing mark (a right-apostrophe) following the letter, rather than the correct accent.

    Regarding this issue, you could simply do a find-replace for any white space in between BWGRKL letters (after you ran the first macro), and then replace it with "find text" (usually ^&) in the BWGRKL font.

    Glad they've been of help Phil. I'd be the first to confess the limitations of the unicode to bwgrkl macro - see the disclaimers in my earlier post. However, I think Jim's post should solve problem (1). Problem (2) is intentional. As the warnings in my earlier post explain, this macro was a quick fix for some files with mixed English and Greek text. I didn't want all the white spaces in the English text converted to bwgrkl.

    Despite its limitations, the macro is very fully commented and should provide enough information for you to adapt it according to your needs.

    Default BWtoUC Macro

    Hello John Kendall,

    Am I allowed to use parts of your macros in another word-macro i want to share with my fellow students at my seminary?

    I`m creating a combined macro for converting fonts from BW and E-sword to UniCode an vice versa.

    Hi Michael,

    I posted it for anyone to use as they wish. I'm just glad that my initial clunky efforts at playing with macros are of use to someone!

    It may be that your macro will be useful for other Bibleworks users. Perhaps when it's complete you might be willing to post it here.

    God bless,

    John

    I'm looking for some assistance with this. I ran the macro on a Word document but nothing happened. I then double-checked and saw that the font in my document is bwgrkn not bwgrkl. I'm guessing this is why it didn't work.

    Does anyone know of a macro to convert bwgrkn to unicode?

    I think this thread has what you're looking for.

    In that macro though you'll probably have to change "bwgrkl" to "bwgrkn" if that's what you're using.
