    Hi Scott,

    Do you mean: export the text along with accents and vowels and then make relevant replacements?

    Hmmm, that'll take some time, and it may be quicker to just make manual corrections to the (couple of hundred?) compound names that require a space but have been joined in exporting.

    I think it would be good if the "export option" "Remove Hebrew space-dots" worked for what I have attempted to do.

    Thanks,
    David.

    OK, task accomplished.

    I exported WTT with accents and vowels. Then replaced ~ with ))))) (just to be safe!). Then compiled this new text. I then exported this text without accents and vowels. Then in this new text I replaced ))))) with a space. I also replaced $ and & with # and every -_ and - with a space. All this results in a text when compiled into BW is purely a consonantal text. Fantastic.

    Regards,
    David Kummerow.

    Enough's enough. The guys at the company can make a macro in 1/2 hour to let us export what we want - cantillated, pointed text OR clean text OR half and half: pointed not cantillated either 1) pointed not cantillated with sin/shin dots;or 2) pointed not cantillated without sin/shin dots. Don't drive the users nuts!

    That's pretty much what I was suggesting. I just didn't know how much replacing it would take.

    Anyway, now that you've got it, how about uploading here, or emailing it to me and I'll make it available on my site until Michael (hopefully) puts it on his blog.

    Hi Scott,

    I've uploaded here as the forum allowable file size is quite small.

    Regards,
    David.

    I've also made it available on our server. Unfortunately this is the last week of the quarter and next week is finals week, but hopefully in two weeks I'll be able to post a few more things on the blog (finally).

    I had to redo the version as I discovered a few errors (with the positioning of aleph and due to my ")))))" method).

    Please grab the file again from here.

    @Michael
    Are you interested in adding colorised Hebrew accents. The file is here.

    Regards,
    David.

    Yeah i will upload them both later tonight. The blog explanation for them will still have to wait a couple of weeks, but if you want to write up an explanation of what the coloring is for the blog, that would make my job easier
