SITUATION

I'm working with inDesign in a Dutch interface.

I want to make a book with text in Greec with Greec characters (instead of Latin/Roman characters).
I going to get the text from a friend in Greec in a MS-WORD document.

I want to copy/paste the Greec text from WORD to inDesign text.

 

PROBLEM

When I copy/paste the text. inDesign treats it as an image instead of proper text.

 

QUESTION

How can I tell inDesign to accept Greec text in het text-fields on my layout?

TIA
Ron

If you are able to get a font with Greek characters in Word, why don't you use the same font in your InDesign document? And since you are on Mac, you could use Helvetica, Helvetica Neue, Myriad Pro, Minion Pro. All these fonts have Greek characters.

Really? I cannot reproduce this. What happens if you import the Word file instead of pasting? Do you use a font which has Greek glyphs?

Thanks for getting back to me.

I've got a Greec glyph font on my Mac MS WORD. So the text is in Greec in WORD.

But I can't find Greec glyph font for my inDesign on Adobe Typekit.

When I choose "Greec" under languages in TypeKit, it only displays fonts that use Roman characters.

Where can I find a Greec character font for inDesign?

TIA !
Ron
