I copied and pasted the dotted circle in your post, and its Unicode value is U+25cc, not the same value as the dotted circle you see when you type a vowel with the Ezra SIL keyboard. I cannot find a single glyph that matches it. Starting a rtl line with a space fixes that. Oh ok I found it - metheg is right-alt-1 (no shift) and it will combine with a qamats in Ezra SIL font. I was able to type that with an extra space! I don't know how the text books do it. It is used when Qamets is followed by a vocal shewa. In Microsoft Word, the Format -> Paragraph menu can be used to change the paragraph's default direction to right-to-left.

A Hebrew keyboard (Hebrew: מקלדת עברית mikledet ivrit) comes in two different keyboard layouts. I don't know what the < above the character is produced by in the first place, much less whether I can combine it with anything else. To get multiple side by side like that you have to hit space between each one. I vaguely recall there used to be a way to combine characters in Word. To restore this functionality, change your keyboard layout to Hebrew, and remove the Hebrew (Standard) layout. Two things I cannot reproduce. Refer to \Ezra SIL Release 2.0\Keyboards\Tiro Keyboards\BiblicalHebrew(SIL)Manual.pdf pages 7-10 for the keyboard maps. It is not consistent marked in the BHS, but the textbooks usually consistently use the metheg. Yes. So yes I can do this in Ezra SIL it seems in LibreOffice on Win 10. Ok couple of things : the vowels I pasted in above in my paste look fine on my PC in Firefox. If you don't they end up combined which of course might be desired.

The text direction is different depending on if there is a real consonant (preformative/sufformative).
