I have a magazine article that included both English and Hebrew text. A copy and paste of the text creates square blocks where the Hebrew verbiage is. How do I go about correcting this? Thank you in advance!

You probably know this or most of it if you've been working wtih alternate-glyph and RTL languages, but... For running inclusion of Hebrew, you need a font that supports Hebrew characters.

  1. For running inclusion of Hebrew, you need a font that supports Hebrew characters. I think most of the Adobe Pro fonts do (as well as other common alphabets).
  2. For separate paragraphs, use Paragraph style that uses a Hebrew font.
  3. For inserted text in a style using a font without Hebrew characters, use a Character style that applies a compatible font.
  4. You will need to manually type Hebrew in reverse, of course, and possiby reverse cut/pastes.

 

Right offhand, I'd say cutting/pasting did not convey the right font, the right glyph assignments or might have been confused by RTL/LTR changes. You may have to fix all cut/pastes unless you can identify the cause and create an optimal conversion style.
