Re: If Dorico had Dorico...

If Dorico or Petrucci had Dorico, wouldn’t they use a smaller paper or larger font size?

Re: LilyPond 2.20.0 release

Hm … has it to do with fonts? Sibelius’s and LilyPond’s default fonts have treble clefs (LilyPond also a whole note, a trill and a natural sign) that are very distinct from others.

Re: Dorico Figured Bass Tutorial

(courtesy: typografie.info) https://notat.io/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=403 ;) This reminds me that I really would like to improve that font so that it can do roman numbers and maybe some extended functionality (like H. Riemann’s way of writing major, minor, Leittonwechselklänge, …). If I only had time an...

Re: Triplet across beat?

Ok, I’m not a professional engraver but looking at A before reading your post I simply thought “WTF”. B is much more understandable in this case IMO. Dotted notes under a triplet make it hard for me to see immediately when the a should sound. I tried to make an alternative version of A/B, see attach...

Re: Metrico: Font for metric equations

It does work for me in LibreOffice (6.3.4 on Manjaro Linux). It just doesn’t have quarter triplets (3qqq), only a single quarter triplet (3q) and eighth triplets (3eee). The display in LibreOffice is not optimal (it is cut off above the regular line height) but print preview, pdf export and print al...

Re: Metrico: Font for metric equations

Metrico seems not to support quarter triplets. The other notes are cut off in display but print and print preview are correct.

Partial measures: accidentals

Hi everybody,

do I have to repeat the :n after the double barline in the middle of m. 43? I think so but I’m not 100% sure.

And how about accidentals after line breaks in the middle of a measure?

Partial measures: bar numbering and volta repeats

Hi everybody, I’m setting some piano variations and have some questions about partial measures: If a variation ends with a full measure and the next starts with an anacrusis, how should the anacrusis be numbered? In my case, the last measure of var. VII (numbered 131) is full, so I’m not sure whethe...

Re: Where to put this dot?

The second option looks most logical to me (and to LilyPond, it’s the default behaviour), however there is a third option:

Edit: You might argue that the dot is ambiguous but who would really expect a dotted sixteenth under these circumstances (4/4 time, “default” beaming of 16 16ths, …)

Re: Has anyone read the following books? (Boustead, Mender, Chlapik)

I read Chlapik a while ago but none of the others so I cannot compare ;) (only parts of Gould and some pages of Read)
