Greek extended layout
Very useful for teachers, students, researchers, scholars and anyone who uses ancient-polytonic (extended) greek. Basicly, it is almost the same layout with modern greek, except for these:
Long pressing ε, should show characters ἐ, ἑ, ἒ, ἓ, ἔ, ἕ, ὲ, έ Long pressing ρ, should show characters ῤ, ῥ
Long pressing υ, should show characters ὐ, ὑ, ὒ, ὓ, ὔ, ὕ, ὖ, ὗ, ῢ, ΰ, ῦ, ῧ Long pressing ι, should show characters ἰ, ἱ, ἲ, ἳ, ἴ, ἵ, ἶ, ἷ, ὶ, ί, ῒ, ΐ, ῖ, ῗ Long pressing ο, should show characters ὀ, ὁ, ὂ, ὃ, ὄ, ὅ, ὸ, ό
Long pressing α, should show characters ἀ, ἁ, ἂ, ἃ, ἄ, ἅ, ἆ, ἇ, ὰ, ά, ᾀ, ᾁ, ᾂ, ᾃ, ᾄ, ᾅ, ᾆ, ᾇ
Long pressing η, should show characters ἠ, ἡ, ἢ, ἣ, ἤ, ἥ, ἦ, ἧ, ὴ, ή, ᾐ, ᾑ, ᾒ, ᾓ, ᾔ, ᾕ, ᾖ, ᾗ, ῂ, ῃ, ῄ, ῆ, ῇ Long pressing ω, should show characters ὠ, ὡ, ὢ, ὣ, ὤ, ὥ, ὦ, ὧ, ὼ, ώ, ᾠ, ᾡ, ᾢ, ᾣ, ᾤ, ᾥ, ᾦ, ᾧ, ῲ, ῳ, ῴ, ῶ, ῷ
As you can see from the above, the characters are too many for use on a tablet and difficult – even for Greeks. So direct typing of the characters is not feasible.
At the first row of letters (look at the modern greek layout), replace arabic numbers (ancient greek uses letters instead of numbers) with punctuation. 2 with ´ 3 with ` 4 with ῀ 5 with ¨ 6 with ᾿ 7 with ῾ 8 with ι
2, 3, 4 combine with letters ε, υ, ι, ο, α, η, ω 5 combine with letters υ, ι
6, 7 combine with letters ε, ρ, υ, ι, ο, α, η, ω 8 combine with letters α, η, ω 2, 3, 4 do not combine together 5 do not combine with 6, 7, 8 6, 7 do not combine together
Using these rules, all characters described above, are typeable, with no bugs.
For example, long typing 2 + long typing 6 + long typing 8 + simple typing α should print ᾄ.
Also, do these replacements (ancient greek numbers). They behave as letters and have capitals as well.
1 with ϛ (six)
9 with ϡ (nine hundred) 0 with ϟ (ninety)
· (similar to english ;) is necessary and missing from the modern greek layout as well.

P.S. If the layout is out, many people will be pleased when I post it on the forum.
