Welcome masm1958,

you should provide more information to the community if you expect answers.
Which LibreCAD version do you use?
What have you tried so far?
What does not happen?
Maybe a sample file or screenshot can clarify things.

I can't tell you the reason, but I have experimented a bit. I have found out I can write it by typing in, but the rhombs appear if I insert it (copied from your posting in greek letters) by pasting into the input box.
It might have to do something with the keyboard layout and mapping, or language setting in LibreCAD or your OS, but I am no guru on that.
I got some more success with greek_ol.

Hi, I was told that the link for greek fonts from post "greek fonts, large file from dwg to librecad"  is broken.
So, https://drive.google.com/open?id=1t7f173hwDCjZaAD96iS1jM7hxdyvDtj4 is my whole fonts directory. I don't have installed librecad for now, but i was informed by 'gkenis' that  unicode-mine & wqy-unicode fonts still works.
Thanks for your hospitality.

Many thanks jimishol for sharing this!

I'd say we can host the fonts, which aren't deployed, on our wiki. But we have to check the licenses first.
When the licenses are okay, we can also consider to deploy the missing fonts with installation packages.
