    Angry Copying Hebrew into Word 10

    I am copying a lot of Hebrew passages into a chart on Windows 10. But when I look at the Hebrew on the chart I notice a lot of word transpositions (out of order). It is VERY difficult to use move text to correct this. What I usually do is highlight the unpointed Hebrew on BW10, copy it, then use Word10 Paste (the merge formatting option). What am I doing wrong? I almost never use BW10 copy function since I find t unwieldy to choose version to copy.

    Is it because the chart is narrow and the text is wrapped as "left to right" when it should be treated instead as "right to left" ?

    Default Copying Hebrew into Word 10

    Is it because your chart is narrow and the words are wrapping? Perhaps the text is being treated as left-to-right instead of right-to-left? Do you have the RTL and LTR buttons in your Word toolbar?

    I've noticed the same issue, had to copy Hebrew across for an essay I was working on last week and sometimes the word order would change unexpectedly, especially if it went over one line. Moving words was tricky in MS WORD but possible with care not to affect the pointing. The way I got round it was to copy and paste one word at a time in the order I wanted. Not ideal for longer passages. Any other suggestions would be welcome.

    I currently only have Apache OpenOffice (4.1.2), and DavkaWriter 7 on Windows 10 to the test this issue and so far I haven't been able to reproduce the 'word transpositions error' in either of the wordprocessors mentioned above when I copy and paste Hebrew text from BibleWorks 10 (Version 10.0.4.216).
