In Part 3 of our tutorial series, I reproduced the hieroglyphs found in a cartouche, went through a few diiferent steps that were to help you search for unknown hieroglyphs (Another method is the Aaou Dictionary App!), but did not organize them.
In this part of the tutorial, I will expand on Part 3 by showing you different methods for arranging individual hieroglyphs JSesh.
For the beginner, the basic commands will fulfill all your arrangement needs.
There are only 4 symbols that you need to know, and they each serve a separate grouping function. Below is a list of the symbols and their respective function.[box]
: – Places the glyph below the previous glyph or glyph group.
* – Groups glyphs side-by-side
& – Groups glyphs together in the most appropriate blank space around a glyph.
( ) – Glyphs in parentheses can be arranged as one entity.
Lets see how these symbols in action by using the Manuel de Codage we created in the last part.
