I have a query about using Keyman Yolngu font in the Max Planck Institute’s transcription software, Elan. The font works fine in other programs, but in Elan the keys just type as a normal keyboard (eg. backslash and square brackets etc instead of the special characters). I have an older version of Keyman Yolngu font on another computer, and this works fine. This older Keyman keyboard is called Yolngu-J and used a semi-colon, ;j, to make a tailed n, and similarly for all the letters. It is no longer available anywhere that I can see.
I put a query about the issue on github, and received a response saying that it is a bug in the Java platform, and that is has been documented for Oracle to fix for 3 years now.
On both computers I am using OS10.15.7 Catalina.
Is it possible that the old Yolngu-J keyboard could be reloaded to the website for us to use? This was a much easier keyboard for touch typing (I have used both keyboards extensively, having used A Yolngu NTU years ago which had the same keyboard layout).
I need to use this font in this software frequently for work and study, and I know others who are experiencing this same issue.
Grateful for any assistance you can offer.
