Hi Gary,

Hi,this is a bit of an unusual request , I know, but I'm wondering if
it is possible to define a custom order for characters when comparing
strings. I'm studying some ancient languages where the transcription
"alphabets" use a mixture of standard English characters (but not
necessarily in the same order they are found in the English alphabet)
interspersed with Unicode characters to give things like accents or
like dots (or other additions) underneath the letters. I'd like to
create a dictionary list, probably in calc in the first instance with
words and synonyms, and be able to sort either on the English column
or on the 'other language' column. Is this sort of thing going to be
possible? Or would I have to write some (possibly fairly complex)
Basic (or whatever) code to do it?Thanks,/Gary

I'm not sure I understand well what you want to do, but there is a way
to have a word and it's transcription at the same place.
To get this function go to Tools > Options > Languages settings >
Language and activate Asian.
Then in the Format menu, select Asian phonetic guide.
In the Base text field, you write the 'normal' word, in the Ruby field
the different word.
The area below let you choose where to put the Ruby text. Note that Ruby
is also a style that you can modify.
Don't know if that helps.
You can also build your own list of words, but that will appear as a
dictionary for spell checking.
