Fonts other than English

I work a lot with English but I also work with Hebrew alphabets. Would this program work with them?

You can see the font examples from this website:
http://www.stitchesbysue.net/id85.html This one has several listed, the first is a ribbon font, and the second is an outline, and is like redwork.
I also have this font as well, which has three different versions: a small one, a larger one with floral designs with it, and a larger one with the floral, which is then multicolored:

If it would work using these fonts, that would be helpful. It would be really useful to be able to.

Also, a second question. Some of the letters sit on the line, and parts go beneath the line, similar to a g, p, and q. We also have one letter that sort of looks like an apostrophe, sits at the top of the upper line, but is a bit larger than an apostrophe. Can the program be adjusted to recognize these letters and know what to do with each one?

I think as long as you can assign each Hebrew letter to an English one, it should work. As you assign the letters it is very easy to adjust the baseline. You can try asking this question on the Embrilliance Facebook page also - maybe someone there has tried it.

Thank you for answering. Even though both alphabets are different, I know there are both programs that allow you to use both the English keyboard, or have a Hebrew keyboard.

I think I will try. And, yes, I will connect on the Facebook page. Thank you for your suggestions!

kolheidi, I don't have an answer to your question though I agree with what CLT3 said as well as your suggestion of trying a Hebrew keyboard. (Maybe people using other languages have a similar experience.) I've long had some yet-unused Hebrew fonts so was interested in your enquiry.

I'm writing to let you know that recently Jolson's Designs http://www.jolsonsdesigns.com launched a new Hebrew font, available in two different size sets (they previously only had one font in total). Not only are they in BX format for AlphaTricks but also you can save with their online coupon codes. I've used their fonts for several years and they always stitch out very nicely. With my recent purchase, I now have all three of their Hebrew font sets. Font-junkies can never have too many specialty sets, can we?
