Wait, but on your video you use 0, and the box is much larger. Stop video at 0:15.

I'm not clear from reading this thread whether or not it might be possible to have a tightly fitting opaque rectangle around dynamics in Engraver (or indeed in Maestro) font.
David, simply check Jan's video. At 0:15 he enters zeros, but you can manipulate with that by dragging the border manually. Start anyway with some line thickness so that you can manipulate with the box, than choose 0 as the line width.

Thank you OCTO. It's so much easier than I thought - and I don't need to confuse myself with FANs…

Sorry, I was a bit unclear. What I meant is the box with the smallest distance (distance=0) to the font boundaries. That was the problem we were talking about. One would expect that 0 is the smallest distance to the symbol's boundaries, but it's the distance to the font boundaries.

I have updated the Elbound Music Font Package to v1.1.
It includes many minor optimizations (especially kerning and spacing), four new fonts (Musica, Symbola, Noto Sans Symbols and Gonville) and 16 new composite symbols which make the incomplete original fonts even look more consistent in Finale.
