BTW, the examples above are done:
1. Schott in SCORE
Are you sure?
The example from Odod looks like the "SchottMusic" font in Finale, but not the SCORE font.

BTW, Schott seems to have a dedicated Finale and a dedicated Sibelius font:

Sibelius: https://de.schott-music.com/shop/pdfvie ... idy=134456

That's right, I was fooled by the slur setting which reminds me of SCORE.
That Schott is indeed done in Finale, when I checked closely (as far as I could do it from a bitmap image), it is visible the typical Finale stem connections, ending bar-lines' connections, spacing, grace-notes settings look, etc.

I was under the impression that SCORE does not use fonts for any musical symbols (perhaps excepting dynamics?), but is entirely vector based.
That is indeed completely true, I believe even for dynamics.
