Accordance Hebrew font hiding symbols?

Recommended Posts

It was recently brought to my attention that the kaf sofit at the very end of Num 6:25 (וִֽיחֻנֶּֽךָּ) has a dagesh in it. I had not noticed it before, partly because the Accordance Hebrew font displays the qametz right on top of the dagesh, thereby obscuring it. The same thing happens in Gen 12:1 with אַרְאֶֽךָּ (also 2 Ki 3:14 and Zech 1:9).

 

Is there some setting for the Accordance font that will eliminate this overwriting of symbols? Or will this require changing the Accordance font to fix it?

 

A.D.

It is only in HMT-W4 that the dagesh is hidden.

I copied and pasted the word from Accordance's HMT into LibreOffice, and made it use the Accordance font. It looks perfect there.

The dagesh is not hidden in the Android version, so the problem is with the desktop versions of Accordance. Note: I can't check iOS.

I have reported similar problems (but in my case the zoom level influenced the problem)

You can solve this problem by importing your own Hebrew text and using a custom font:
