    Default KWIC doesn't seem to allow copying the accent on some words eg Ezekiel 21:31 hasir

    KWIC doesn't seem to allow copying the accent on some words eg Ezekiel 21:31 hasir

    Notice of the three entries I selected in KWIC.. The first one, the hebrew word has an accent, but that accent doesn't get copied when I choose to copy it then paste it into notepad. I am using Courier New which supports hebrew and we see accents on the other words pasted into notepad, so it's not a font issue

    I discovered something interesting by copying the KWIC text into both Notepad and LibreOffice Writer which supports Rich Text formatting.

    I did a few tests, where I copied "formatted" into Notepad and LibreOffice Writer with "Copy to Unicode" checked and unchecked.
    1. Copying (without option "Copy to Unicode" checked)
    - Notepad displayed just Latin alphabet letters but seemed to have all of the characters to include the Hebrew accents.
    - LibreOffice Writer displayed the text exactly as it appears in KWIC.

    2. Copying (with the option "Copy to Unicode" checked)
    - Notepad displayed the same result that you got that lacked the last accent.
    - LibreOffice Writer displayed the Hebrew text also lacking the last accent. (See screenshot below)

    I'm assuming that for your project you need to use Unicode. Otherwise, if you are able to use the standard non-Unicode fonts in a Rich Text capable editor you should be able to capture the formatting with the correct markings. If you need to use Unicode for your project, I would encourage you to file a bug report. I was able to reproduce this copying issue with the latest version of BW10.
