Re: Fantastic old scores' simulation + fonts

Well, about the style: your brilliant font is also Henle style, isn't it? So, shell we worry about our effort? It is (as I've said already), but I'd only be concerned if we are dealing with current styles and designs. Historical designs? I don't thank that matters so much. The history of engraving ...

Re: Fantastic old scores' simulation + fonts

Perhaps someone is knowledgeable about the current legal issues regarding fonts, engraving, copyright, patent law, and this should become another thread? Here's my current understanding about the legality of this issue (and, for the record, I'm not accusing Wess of doing anything illegal): If a per...

Re: Fantastic old scores' simulation + fonts

Re: Lilypond

However, I have not been engraving my scores for years, and so using Lilypond would imply that a Lilypond engraver does it. But I AM interested in Lilypond and might give a try. You should!

Re: Lilypond

Is a GUI inherently impossible with LilyPond? I think there is Musescore as the alternative. Now, I am not entirely sure how Lilypond relates to Musescore. Is it the main engine for Musescore? No, LilyPond is a fundamentally different software design than MuseScore. There's no reason you couldn't u...

Re: Welcome

I think this is a wonderful idea (thanks for the invitation Fred and OCTO)! I'll put up a post on the LilyPond user list to see if I can pull in anyone else who'd be interested in discussing software-agnostic notation/engraving issues. May this forum be a benefit to all who participate in its conver...
