Re: Alignment of (double) whole notes

FYI, here's LilyPond's default; it seems to align left. It's not exactly "left-aligned". The glyphs in LilyPond fonts are encoded such that the vertical short stems are farther left than the left side of the notehead itself. The SMuFL standard allows the same thing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapata...

Re: [Lilypond] Numerous Questions & Thoughts

If it is not too late to jump on the bandwagon here: I came to LilyPond REALLY late. Like, saw it was cool, cost nothing, and instantly got turned off by the programming facade. I've bought several versions of Finale, even cross-graded over to Sibelius for a couple years, went to MuseScore, then arr...

Re: Binding of full scores (coil? wire-o? comb? &c)

I think, to tag on to @OCTO, that it is important to make sure that the weight of the paper is more significant, and that the finish is also not rough. Most printer papers are inadequate and substantially underwhelming for these kinds of tasks. A 60 gsm paper weight should be at the BOTTOM of the la...

Re: A font from a obsolete notation program

This is a fabulous font. I love the balance of it: one of the first I've liked with the perpendicular center line on the G clef! Well done!

I know @tisimst would love to convert it over the LilyPond ;)

Re: Alignment of (double) whole notes

I imagine there will be two camps that fall into place for this discussion: The first will be those who go for "optical importance" and will say that it is more important that the optical alignment lead to something that will not disrupt the reading of the line, which would mean things are centered ...

Re: [puzzle] Two voices in one staff

I like OCTO's best. I think it is because subconsciously, I'm tempted to think and forget and possibly confuse the versions which are so tidy, and avoid collisions with notes in the middle of the staff. Even though it is a bit more spaced out, I think it speaks for itself without much minutiae of co...

Re: Steinberg Dorico

There, I used "Dorico" four times in one post, now maybe several hundred more and... I'm proud of you. Way to work through the pain. ;) I must have gotten the wrong impression then about the comments. Of course, if you intend to buy it out the gate, then I would understand if you are concerned abou...

Re: Steinberg Dorico

I'm not sure whether these objections to Dorico are founded on necessity, or on current necessities of personal workflows. Also, are we complaining about something not working because it should work, or because it doesn't match our current expectations of productivity within our own programs? I thin...

Re: Beautifying Mallet Percussion

Unfortunately, different notehedas or colours never, AFAIK, represent hands. There is no need to discover anything exotic when we have enough complex music script. For me , the biggest problem in the example of the OP is wrong beaming and other oddities such as spacing and layout. If I can find a c...
