Howdy, do any of the standard included Finale fonts include the Hauptstimme (or Nebenstimme) abbreviation symbols? I peeked through the viewer and found nothing, but just because I didn't find it does not mean it isn't there... ;)

There are indeed no symbols for H (U+1D1A6) or N in standard Finale fonts.
But some fonts do have it, such as Sonora, Stockholm, Fravura Extra, Opus Extra, FreeSerif, Thesis, Bravura.
You can also create it in Finale shape designer, by typing N and add a line to get it correctly.

I use the Haupstimme sign from Fravura-Extra. I used to use Opus Special for this, but it doesn't seem to display correctly for me in Finale 25, although it was fine in older versions of Finale.

There are many music fonts that include these symbols (H,N, RH and CH).
