Re: Fantastic old scores' simulation + fonts

Nice work, odod! That looks really great! The one thing that sticks out a little are some of the fingering that feel unnecessarily far away from their notes. Other than that, great job!

Yep, I agree about the treble clef.
Personally, I use a custom close-to-Score-look treble clef.
Here's my coding:
Are you coding the clef directly in the code, without the font?!?
Witness the power and flexibility of LilyPond...

... and the incredible patience of @Schneider lol.

Re: Alternatives to Adobe Creative Cloud

Fantastic list, benwiggy! Always good to get insights from users on the front lines! I can vouch for Inkscape and GIMP. While not *identical* to their Adobe counterparts, you'll be quite hard pressed to find functionality that they don't support or can't be reasonably done another way. As opposed to...

Re: The longest slur - ever.

Actually, I think this is possible in Dorico. You can also do it in LilyPond, not with any default setting, but a little coding of a custom function allows it. I’ve seen it done.

But your point is well taken. “Legato” should capture what this messy slur suggests.

Re: Affinity Publisher Public Beta

Actually, there are some issues with importing PDFs. It can't cope with the complex glyphs in Figurato at all, and some elements like lyric hyphens and staff brackets are moved around a bit. (The same is true in Affinity Designer, as it's the exact same engine.) That's quite surprising since it boa...

Re: Best way to notate long(ish) voiced consonant?

Agree with benwiggy. That's how I've seen it done in choral works I've performed and it was very clear. Put "(mm)" or even just "(m)" on the syllable where you want it to begin and the choir will know what to do.

I appreciate that. A well-rounded set of tests would be very helpful. I’ll let you know!

Re: Music Type Foundry - question

There definitely is, but it I haven't had as much free time to work on it as I'd like. Additionally, I decided to add another set of glyphs in order to make future updates less necessary. I will also need to do some quality assurance testing before releasing it, but I will absolutely let you know wh...
