Re: Braces

What excels Fred's brace is the perfect harmony with clefs in the BW-domain. Now I am even more convinced about color harmony between braces and clefs.

Font collections

I don't know if it is better place than "Sites" sub-forum, but I guess anyone interested in fonts will look first here.

Interesting collection, worth to mention:
https://fonts.openlilylib.org/

My favorites:
- Beethoven
- Cadence
- Profondo
- Sebastiano
- Scorlatti

Boosey twitters about accidental kerning

OMG! Engraving rules as tweets... Done in SCORE.

However, I have examples of B&H's scores far from being so meticulous... :cool:

Re: Lilypond

Indeed, very nice.
Pierre, would you be interesting in engraving some examples, what I think is "advanced", and what I find in my engraving/music very often?
It would be great to compare these results! My examples are done in Finale.

Private message stays in OUTBOX

Problem: Private messages are still in Outbox folder.

Solution: no solution. It is the forum's kernel, that setting cannot be edited. The message is in Outbox as long the recipient hasn't open it. You can still edit the message.

Re: Braces

I like your brace as well!
I remember I have tried once to edit brace, but I got it very messy. It is not easy!

ADD: I would like to know your settings as well!

Lilypond

http://lilypond.org/ I have been always very fascinated with SCORE. Lilypond has similar way to execute engraving procedure. I wonder if here is anyone using it on regular basis. I am also curious about the efficiency of making scores in Lilypond (fixing errors, re-arranging, copy pasting), spatial...

Re: Braces

Interesting, indeed. I was also thinking about it. Hard to say, but I can say which I dislike: 9, 11, 13. I would vote for 6 and 7. About the BW-balance here as well: I find it that balancing well with clef is very important. Clefs of 6 looks similar to 1, but the brace at 1 takes to much black colo...

Re: On Beaming

Check out measures 22, 33, 36, etc. It's just one example and the first thing I clicked on so I'll give them the benefit of the doubt, but m36 looks pretty awful to my eye: https://farm1.staticflickr.com/587/22517319725_27b3516f6a_z.jpg Many things are pretty awful here, not just for you. It seems ...

Re: 12/8 Question

quarter rests in ⅜? generally not, but some prefer to have quarter rests leading the beat (despite the rules for ¾ etc). This provides consistency with 6/8, 9/8, 12/8 etc. I think the reason for that is that 3/8 should be interpreted as simple time but not compound time signature. So, rests at odd-...
