Hello,

I frequently have to use greek letters like alpha, beta, etc in my pictures. When I use the greek keyboard (by checking it in International in Mac OS X Tiger), it just gives me question marks (although it would work in, say, textedit, but copying and pasting on PS will again give question marks)

Also, I don’t find any font called greek under fonts (formatting pallette) , although there are numerous fonts which no one ever uses. Is there a way I can add greek fonts to Photoshop?

I am using Photoshop CS for Mac

Thanks,

Alpesh

The font "Symbol" produces the Greek-Letters you want to have. I’m a windows user, but I think, the Mac should have the font too. But whether it works correct together with the Greek keyboard I can’t say. You’ve got to try.

Thanks Bjorn, yes they are present on a Mac to. But is there a way to see these fonts? for example, I could guess that A is alpha and B is Beta and it worked, but I wanted an Alpha’ (alpha prime) and the ‘ types something else in that symbol font. Alpesh

I think this urls should help you:

It’s meant for PC but the keyboard at the Mac should work the same way.
