I don't recall if it is in the Bible Desktop manual or not (which you  
can get from the website), but go into the Book installer, and when  
you click on the Book or the language, the "Font" button will become  
active. You can use any font and font size in the list. Note, when  
viewing books in parallel, the font that is used is the one for the  
first book. Someday that will change.

I suggest SIL's Greek font. I think it is called Charis.

Hope that helps.

In Him,
