Write texts in an ancient/modern language

1. Install the fonts you have downloaded from this webpage.

2. Restart KORAIS if it was running during the installation of the fonts.

3. Choose from the left list on the Toolbar the font you want to use.


4. From the right list on the Toolbar choose the Keyboard Layout you want to use.

5. From the Language Bar of your Operating System choose Engish-US, if not already selected. Usually you can find the Language Bar on the bottom right part of your desktop.

If the Language Bar is not visible on the bottom right part of your Desktop then (for Windows XP) go to "Start", then "Settings", then "Control Panel", then "Regional and Language Options", "Languages", "Details", "Language Bar" and select "Show the Language Bar on the Desktop".

6. Depending on the Keyboard Layout of KORAIS you have chosen (above step 4), you can use Hot Keys to produce certain characters. For istance, if you want to write Ancient Greek you can use the following Hot Keys: , for the acute accent, < for the grave accent, . for the psili, > for the dasia, q for the circumflex, Q for iota subscript, W for diairesis. E.g. in order to produce a with the acute accent press once the key , and then press once the key a. In order to write a with psili and the acute accent press once the key ,, then once the key . and finally the key a.

There is an easy way to see all the Hot Key combinations available to every Keyboard Layout. Just click View and then KeyboardLayout for the window beneath. Remember that you can click on the SHIFT button of the panel to toggle between small letters and capitals.

How to use a non-Unicode font

Follow the above steps 1, 2 and 3. Then on Toolbar on the bottom right of your desktop choose English_en_US. That's it, just write in the editor of KORAIS.
