Hiero is not a hieroglyphic text editor. It must be considered as a help to the transliteration of hieroglyphs. Its principle is simple and WYSIWIG: on one side you have a papyrus and of the other one hieroglyphs. You just have "to drag" or to copy hieroglyphs to drop them on the papyrus; can be in the style of a scribe registering hieroglyphs on its papyrus...

You will so obtain information on the so established sequence (transliteration, grammatical structure, list of the Gardiner codes, the phonetic reading).

Looks interesting, but doesn't seem to work on OS X 10.9. Drag and drop does nothing. Also, why do you have to type the sign code in, why not just drag and drop the sign itself?

Hello Jwelsbin,

HIERO was tested, builded and deployed under OS X 10.9.

It happens some time that the drag and drop does not work correctly (it is necessary to get used to) - insure you when you drop that one "+" icon appears on the place where must be deposited the hieroglyph ; if it is not the case the drag and the drop will not work (you will find in user guide some tricks) !

You can if you want type a sign for example : D* (list all signs which begin by "D") : it's useful to list certain hieroglyphs which don't appear on the lists.

So the drag and drop and the type of sign are complementary.

I advise you to consult the documentation (help menu) for more informations about use of HIERO.

If you still have problems with use of HIERO, do not hesitate to contact me at hiero.project@gmail.com
