Does anyone have advice for pasting Hebrew Biblical text with cantillation marks into InDesign? We have the Middle Eastern version, and all of the regular Hebrew works beautifully, but the font doesn't seem to recognize cantillation symbols. Changing the font has only been a kerning disaster. Thanks very much!

"Changing the font has only been a kerning disaster."

 

Why? Can you show some sample screenshots?

Text frame selected, invisible characters showing and also the Story Editor Window.

 

Thanks,

I'm curious about what font you are using, as well as asking all of Uwe's questions.

 

(Also, I'd like to place a small side bet on it being something from the LaserHebrew family from Linguist's Software.)

There are not so many fonts that support cantillation symbols properly, if at all.

The one free one that comes to mind is https://www.sbl-site.org/educational/biblicalfonts_sblhebrew.aspx

When you use that, does copy-pasting work?
