Urgent help needed with Coptic Fonts
« on: 20 March , 2013, 07:58:14 pm »
Hello All, I am working with St. George & St. Shenouda in Jersey City NJ, the authors of the widely distributed Coptic Presentations.  There is a specific issue with non-breaking char insertion with non-unicode jemkin.  If there are any font experts that can assist it would greatly be appreciated.  Please email me at ray@wassef.org

Actually there is a Jenkim as a part of the unicode Coptic font
Only some fonts don't support it

I recommend FreeFont

Though I can read and write with Coptic Fonts in Word, it wasn't possible to copy my text in Coptic letters here. The letters were transformed to normal latin letters. Also, I cannot read some of the Coptic texts here. What can I do to solve this problem?

Hi CЄTMOCЄ,
First of all welcome to the forum, nice to have Sahidic speaking members.
about your question, you are using an ascii based font you need to use a unicode font instead

I said "I found it/that". Is there such a big difference between Bohairic and Sahidic? I haven't though so.

You can't use AϮ to express past in Bohairic (didn't know you can in Sahdic either)
should be ⲁⲓ
ϬN̅TϤ̅ in Bohairic is ϫⲉⲙϥ
so all in Boahric is ⲁⲓϫⲉⲙϥ
