I would like to ask if anyone has successfully transcribed with the hamnosys in ELAN. I found one talk in the forum with the same issue in 2012, but there is no more data about this topic.

I have difficulties transcribing with the hamnosys, the ELAN does not recognize it (nor if I paste the symbols in the tier). Can someone help me?

If you have the HamNoSys font installed (HamNoSysUnicode.ttf) you can select that font for the tiers you want to use for the HamNoSys transcriptions. This can be done through the menu Tier->Change Tier Attributes… and then the More Options button.
At the moment it is not possible to set a per tier font size, this can only be done per viewer and the HamNoSys symbols will probably look small compared to other annotations. A possible solution might be to select a HamNoSys tier in e.g. the Grid Viewer and increase the font size there.

You won’t have an input method for HamNoSys in ELAN, so you will have to copy and paste from somewhere else.
