Q: Why can't I write Devanagari and Gothic, etc.?
A: MultiKey contains only a Greek font. The rest are keyboard layouts to use with other, mainly Unicode compliant, fonts. So you need a font that includes the script you need (and the case of complex scripts also a word processor capable of handling them). Some fonts with many scripts are: TITUS Cyberbit basic, ALPHABETUM Unicode.
Q: Instead of accented Greek characters I get
A: Windows has not "realised" that new fonts have been installed. Open the Fonts folder (Start - Settings - Control Panel - Fonts), and double-click "Aisa Unicode" to open it. Close the open windows.
Q: Instead of a grave accent, there is a small vertical
line on the epsilon
A: This is only due to the screen resolution. Use a larger zoom factor or font size, or print it: then you will see the grave accents.
Q: I am using Windows 7 and cannot access the MultiKey menu
from the icon at the application bar.
A: Activate MultiKey by pressing Alt+Tab. Then press Alt+Space. The menu shows up - and also offers you to transfer the icon to the "Notification area".
Q: MultiKey sometimes ceases to work.
A: This can happen if you start another application. Press Shift+Ctrl+Alt+L to re-initialize MultiKey. If nothing helps, close and restart MultiKey and your word processor.
Q: How to type a series of uncombined characters which
represent a combination (e.g. "a+" instead of
A: Between the characters, press Shift+Ctrl+Alt. Or, to disable MultiKey temporarily, press Shift+Ctrl+Alt+X.
This program is a free service to anyone concerned with
Ancient Greek etc. – if you feel the need to pay for
it, do so to someone who needs it.
