Greek Letters in OG
 
Hi,
how do you put greek letters in OG ?
Right now I do it as follows:
open TextEdit
switch to greek keyboard
enter a tau or other letter
copy that to OG

Isn't there an easier way? I was not able to enter greek letters directly in OG?

Regards

Markus

Select "Special Characters" from the Edit menu
Scroll down the side panel 'til you see "Greek"
Select the letter you want and drag it into OG
(Resize as required)

NB: Tested on MacOS 10.4.7 and OG Pro

I find it very strange that it should be necessary to take such an arduous route to enter Greek in OG, as I regularly use Simplified Chinese in OG without any problems whatsoever, simply switching to the appropriate keyboard.
If you are switching to the Greek keyboard, have you looked to see if you are also switched to a Greek font?

I've just tested it and switching to the greek keyboard lets me input greek characters simply by typing with no problems.

It is working with greek keyboard
 
I switched to greek BEFORE i opened Omnigraffle, but i need to switch WHILE i am in Omnigraffle (standard is German) and I didn't see that it was in German because on my small iBook the menu is full :-)
But one can show a window with the keyboard layouts

Thanks for help!

Markus
