Re: The shape of the crotchet rest

Almost anything seems to be acceptable, as long as it is easily distinguishable from an eighth rest. The reverse eighth rest as a quarter rest was thus doomed from the start. The quarter (semiminima) rest started as a reversed eighth (fusa) rest in white mensural notation, didn’t it? So it would be...

Re: Optical spacing

I agree, but MuseScore isn’t really better. I’m a bit surprised that only Sibelius and LilyPond do optical spacing correctly here …

Re: Optical spacing

Yes, that’s LilyPond’s default spacing.

Re: New to engraving...am I on the right track?

Oh, ok. Is that so? I apologize for the bad advice. It seems in German hyphenation works a bit different then. Yes, German hyphenation mostly follows the spoken syllables. However, it is allowed to hyphenate at former word borders like in „Inter-esse“ and „her-auf“, although the Duden prefers „Inte...

Re: Short Slurs (Octaves)

I’m not an slur expert but have a slightly off-topic suggestion: The clef change should be at a full beat, i. e. an eight later after the g. Apart from the beat it would also make clearer that it’s f♯ g f♯ e d … and not f♯ e d …

Re: Riemann: an OpenType font for functional analysis

Unfortunately it doesn't work that way, either Sibelius nor Finale. I don't have Dorico to test. Hm … Maybe one should think of other symbols instead of _ and - then. Any suggestions? Is it possible to add :n :s :f in to the font? Yes, that would be possible. I first thought one could make this as ...

Re: Riemann: an OpenType font for functional analysis

Also: how do you create "11" or "13"? For now: just put every digit in a separate column: D-1-3 Same for "9>" etc. Maybe ligatures would be nice here. I also tried to find a solution for inputting several lines as lines instead of columns. But that would mean that one either had to have a space of ...

Re: Riemann: an OpenType font for functional analysis

Here I have faced a problem, symbols "-" and "_" create hyphens or word extensions. So here it stopped working. Hm … That’s very similar to the problems in LilyPond (here numbers being another problem). There you can just add quotes: "_3D-7" instead of _3D-7 Maybe you can get it work similarly in F...

Re: Riemann: an OpenType font for functional analysis

If I may ask you, right now I will not have access to FontForge for several weeks, is there any possibility to drop me a message with the generated font? Of course, see PM :) It will be nice to inspect the FF file. I guess, you have done it by using ligatures? (Maybe I have missed it completely, I ...
