position of copulative εἰμί

I was just wondering whether there was any rule for whether copulative εἰμί followed the subject or predicate in certain instances. In the reading I have done, it seems to have a tendency to follow a predicate noun or adjective, but it also seems to commonly follow the subject.

iota subscript in OpenOffice suite

Can someone tell me how to make a simple iota subscript using the Greek Polytonic keyboard layout? I'm using the GFS Porson font.

Thank you kindly
