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 ...

Re: Riemann: an OpenType font for functional analysis

How to use: Bass notes are preceded by an underscore (_), options by a dash (-). A line is input as tilde (~), a space (see below) as period (.). Several symbols (figures, ~, <, >, v, n, N) following a dash stack—up to three layers, the fourth will be again at lowest level but on the next column. Yo...

Riemann: an OpenType font for functional analysis

Hi everybody, I made a font that can be used for inputting function harmony symbols in any software that supports OpenType features. For example, the input (_5>/DD-79-.> D-46-~~.3~-.~-.5)[s-n] _5T_~4 _6/D_~-9_~->_~-~_5-8 t_3G-8-~-7->=DD-5v-> T-469~~~358 has the following appearance: Funktionssymbole...

Re: References on harmonic analysis.

Sorry, maybe I wasn’t clear enough in my first post. I only mentioned LaTeX and LilyPond because that are the two programs for which I wanted to have a common solution. Because there is no possibility (or none I know of) to include LaTeX output in LilyPond or text-only LilyPond output in LaTeX (for ...

Re: References on harmonic analysis.

-- Can it be used, and how, in other-than-LP notation software? There would be eventually a good idea to implement this onto a PDF based material –– a tool that inputs the analysis in existing scores; or a plugin for Sibelius Finale Dorico LP. Is that possible? It’s an ordinary OpenType font so it ...

Re: References on harmonic analysis.

Hi Knut, Abraham, OCTO, I’m new to this forum but at least one of you might know me from the LilyPond lists. In the last few days I modified an existing font (Source Sans Pro) with the goal of being able to print function symbols both in LaTeX and LilyPond. This post on a german-speaking typography ...
