I am using BW8 and everytime I copy Hebrew text to Word and print it I get what looks like "dot-matrix" like circle things under the text. I have a new computer and I am using Wndows 7. Can you help?

Those are accent holder spots...
I'm guessing that in Word, you are not using a Unicode font that has those characters. Try switching the text to SBL Hebrew (which you should have downloaded w/ BW8) or get the excellent, free Cardo font (http://scholarsfonts.net/)

Also go into your font settings in BW:
Tools > Options > General > Fonts
click on Export Fonts
look to the bottom of the window and choose SBL Hebrew (or Cardo) for the Unicode Fonts export

Thanks Mark, but this didn't solve my problem. I am also unable to get the scholars font page to display on my browser. Any other ideas? John

Fixed the link to http://scholarsfonts.net/

It sounds like you are working with Unicode export, but if the font set doesn't include that accent/vowel..., then you will get the mistake.
