Re: Text fonts in musical scores

As I said above, it's not ANY available text font, but only those that I found in existing PDF scores, notation programs or threads on musical text fonts. But I will definitely make the list sortable in a few ways (Suggestions ? e.g. Serif/Sans, Handwritten/Classic, Text Font/Title Font/Lyrics Font/...

Re: Text fonts in musical scores

Here is a tiny update: those fonts that are installed on the user's computer are now automatically shown with an example. https://elbsound.studio/text-fonts.php AFAIK "installed font" detection is not really supported by browsers, that's why the script I used shows the wrong font in some cases - and...

Re: "Urtext Kapellmeister"

I have "Leipzig 1803" from Urtext and assume that Kapellmeister is similar from a technical point of view. An example of Leipzig 1803 can be found here: Vintage Score The package comes with a font similar to Maestro (OTF and TTF), but not 100% compatible, and a number of fonts for Sibelius. There is...
