Re: NorMusicSMFL font for DORICO (still under developement)

Now, do they look ok for you? I tried my best to make the :forte follow the same italic angle of the :piano . This is my personal opinion. I would like to hear what other people think. But sadly, no, I don't feel it good at all. It is too thin and not enough italicised. It is going to be difficult ...

Re: Sebastian SMuFL font

I like more Sebastian than Bravura, actually. Well done. Questions: - have you edited the natural symbol? It seems a bit vertically compressed/emboldened in comparison to the sharp, so that the angle is not the same, and the stems are bolder. Nothing "wrong" in it, just I don't feel comfortable. Als...

Re: Examining an old Baerenreiter score

I don't know: I think I can see a little bit over the edge: I may be imagining it. It may be caused by ink spread, of course. :) :) BTW, can you in Dorico choose another font for a selected measure, staff, system? That would be wonderful if possible. For instance, the reduced staff would have bolde...

Re: Examining an old Baerenreiter score

I think rather the engraver tried to increase legibility for small staves, and only that size of punch was available. If he had 5.7 raster size that would be sufficient. So I guess, it is matter of making it bolder for small staff. Here are some randomly taken Breitkopf scores for varous instruments...

Re: Dorico/Lilypond/SCORE?

Thanks for sharing this, DatOrganistTho, I have read it twice and appreciate your personal reflection upon lilyPond. I am in a very similar situation and have many contemplated learning and using LilyPond, but never started really. Now after reading this, I am sure that LilyPond is a very powerful t...
