I have just upgraded our HTML modules of the Aramaic Peshitta to include vowel points through unicode.  The entire Hebrew character portions are unicode as well as the vowel points.  The problem is that the Hebrew with the vowel points work well in Esword X but when I bring the module into e-Sword V11 on the PC, the vowel points display on the very left hand corner of the letters instead of displaying directly underneath the characters as it does in HTML and in Esword X.

 

Does anyone have any thought as to why this would be and if there is a fix for it.  It would be great to know if anyone has had success with displaying pointed text in Esword V11 and if so how was that done?

 

Many thanks,
Tim.

You should check which font is set in E-Sword for Hebrew the default format for Hebrew is Titus Cyberbit Basic, this font will render Hebrew correctly in E-Sword

The font that I am using in the picture is Titus Cyberbit Basic.  I am aware that is the default and it works fine except for the pointed text.  I have tried Ezra Sil and other unicode fonts and all of them have their problems with correct display of the vowels. 

 

MS unicode and Arial displayed the vowels below the text, but the line on top of the letters was displaced one whole character.

Coming from http://www.biblesupp...orrectly/page-2 (encoding issues with Hebrew text which is now resolved) now I’m having this issue with the font not displaying the vowel points correctly. Used Ezra SIL font setting, then converted the bblx to bbli using Rick’s Apple converter. Were you able solve this issue?

Does the .bbli render ok in e-Sword. 11.2.2 (don't forget to remove the .bblx file when testing)

No, it doesn’t render ok in e-sword 11.2.2.
I used Ezra SIL font setting in T4. I will try to build a new bblx file with TITUS Cyberbit Basic.
I’m not very clear on what the recommended settings are in T4 in order to create Hebrew modules such as font settings, usual variables to use with Hebrew, etc with both RTF and HTML formats.

Pardon my ignorance, but if I have a RTF file, do I need to first save it as a HTML file and then open it in T4 and then save it as bblx so that rendering would be ok in e-sword? Or creating a HTML module means saving it as a bbli format?
