My cousin sent me a file with both Hebrew ad English text. When I open the file, the English text displays correctly, but the Hebrew characters do not (they are just random English characters). How do I get the program to display both English and Hebrew on the same chart? Sorry if this has been answered before but I am a new user and could not find a solution searching the forums. I am using GenoPro on a PC running Windows XP if that matters.

Hi if the file you have received is properly encoded in unicode, there should not be a problem. Was it a genopro file?

It is a .gno file, and along with this file came a .emf copy of the file that does show both Hebrew and English letters properly.

Possibly the font specified in the .gno file is not installed on your PC. Right click on an empty area of your GenoMap, select Properties from the context menu. Then click the 'Font' tab. Choose a font from the list of installed fonts that supports the Hebrew character set.

I tired selecting a different font from the table but still not working properly. I changed to several different fonts, but it didn't seem to matter.  When I choose a font that doesn't support Hebrew, the letters come out as all squares. When I pick a font that supports Hebrew (like Arial) I get small letters and characters with accents over them instead of the squares. Is Windows for some reason not dispalying properly (although I can see Hebrew letters properly in my IE browser when it goes to Hebrew pages)?

The font "Arial Unicode MS" is usually one of the few fully complete font that can display all languages mixed up. (English + Chinese + Arabic + Hebrew)

Did you tried it?

Yes, I tried Arial Unicode but it still did not work. I did find a font on the Internet that I loaded called SBL Hebrew. When I selected it, it showed the Hebrew letters, although they were backwards (from left to right). But it did not display the Enlish letters. So I assume there is some strange font being used in the document. Very strange.
