Re: Better interaction with Bookends

Dear Philip, I have already download it the macro, and check it. I have done some corrections, and I will run next month for my next Egyptological writing. I ask anyone interested to the macro to give me until the end of May before checking the correctness of my own version. As I have looked through...

Re: Better interaction with Bookends

Re: Better interaction with Bookends

Re: Camera ready copy for an Egyptological book

Dear Martin, I thank you for the reply. I understand the point about indexing, but this raises me another question. Can I mark the words I want to put in the transliteration index, so they will be put in an index by their own and manually sort them? I believe that there is no problem about hieroglyp...
