> Apologies for sending a Frame-specific question here, but I have tried numerous times since last week to post to the Framers group and for some reason it's not going through. I'm on a deadline so I can't wait to resolve the Framers problem; I'm hoping someone here can help me.
> I need to add some Greek letters (ΕΛΛΑΣ) to a Frame document but I'm not able to do so. When I copy/paste the letters from Word as text, they show up as question marks; when I paste them in as rich text, they show up in an Asian language (Chinese, Korean, etc.). Does anyone know how I can use Greek letters in Frame, or is it not possible? [After I sent this question originally to the Framers list, I discovered that I'm also having problems with Chinese and Russian characters, so I'm hoping that there is one fix for all languages.]

For Greek characters, just type the Latin equivalents (a for alpha, b for beta, etc.) and then apply a character format that specifies the Symbol font. Same method works for both upper- and lower-case letters.
