I do not know how to type ά instead of α. What is the combination of keys?
If you use Windows, you turn the keyboard into Greek, you press the ; button (next to l button) and then the vowel you want to accent.
For Mac, after enabling the Greek keyboard, type [shift]-[option]-a, to get ά.
Getting the Greek Keyboard: Apple menu..., System Preferences..., Keyboard..., +, Input Sources..., then add Greek. Keep "Show Input menu in menu bar" checked, then you can switch between two Keyboards from the Flags at the menu bar on the top.
Thank you so much! I knew there was a way but figured it would be much easier to ask on here:-) I appreciate your help!
