hello everyone...

Am glad i found this forum. I am doing self-study for NT Greek, having begun only in February 2013. Am in Lesson 27 (out of 44) in the 1965 edition of J.W. Wenham's 'The Elements of New Testament Greek,' a book i had as a kid in 1970 but didn't get very far into at that time.

Today i installed polytonic Greek font from www.logos.com on my Windows7 laptop. I have a post here regarding Greek fonts for Android devices, but the posts on this i've seen here so far haven't been helpful.

Recently acquired 'The UBS Greek New Testament' reader's edition, even tho i'm not quite ready for that, and 'Novum Testamentum Graece et Latine' since my Latin is slightly better than my Greek. Many good tools out there for studying the Word.

Hello, Orrin, and welcome to B-Greek.

Which post are you talking about not being clear enough? Maybe we can clarify things for you. Are you aware that Windows has its own native polytonic Greek keyboard and that you don't need to use any third-party software from Logos (or any other company) in order to use polytonic Greek?

Just wanted to say "hi" and "welcome" and wish you well in your learning. :)

Thank you Jason. ... In the forum Software -> 'Android support for polytonic Greek' -> page 2 -> oh, i see now, posts by you. "Not clear enough" is not the right description, apologies. You were clear enough. It bricked your phone. It sounds too hazardous for me to try. And i'm not willing to root the phone (or my tablet either). But of course i'm listening for any further suggestions.

For now (on Windows 7) i'm using the "Logos Biblical Greek Keyboard" which i installed so that it is one of the choices for foreign-language keyboards on my desktop ("Region and Language"). It is apparently "homophonic" similar to the "Hebrew KU homophonic" which i obtained from another source. I will check out the Windows native polytonic Greek keyboard as well. The Logos keyboard is missing the Greek semicolon · so i copy and paste a raised-dot character which i have stored in a document on my desktop. (What i'm pasting could be a math character for all i know.)
