Re: Old Music Standard

Here is my port of Old Standard, for use within music as text for expression, articulation and so on. I have fixed the italic f in order to look similar to the stylised f. version 1. Wow! this is exacty what Henle use as a text engraving. What a font! I love the italic version, my hat to you Octo. ...

Re: Spacing problem

if you can put the 1 measure to the previous system then you can get the 2nd measure on one system only..maybe? it depends on what you previously notated. Can I have a look at the score file?

Re: SCORE terrible glyphs

I am not sure why nobody has taken this problem in account, particularly Dorico which is the newest software with an active development. In other words: 50% reduced staff size should not have 50% reduced lines and curves! You're right OCTO. In addition to your idea, I've asked Dorico team several t...

Re: SCORE terrible glyphs

It very easy to smooth the angled curves just by doing a screenshot of the whole glyph and paste back into FontLab or FontCreator, do that 2 or 3 times for each glyph... Of course you will need to resize and try some little balance back your new shape. I've used to do that in FC3 in 2002/2003 or so.

Re: SCORE terrible glyphs

Ben, this reminds me about those ttf fonts that were used around early 90s, but I also suspect that it might be some old pdf rendition that were set to low resolutions maybe to 150dpi instead of 300dpi? Sometimes it maybe the faulty output of the font program being used...I remember where FL5 with b...

Re: SCORE Music Publishing System VS. Graphire Music Press

Hi, Just to clarify the way how I re-created my Graphira SMuFL based on Graphire MP online pdf samples. The font I am creating is only an emulation of the font that uses GMP, so I printed out the pdfs, re-scanned the shapes in Ai/FL8, and made a new font, so there is no © copyright infringement here...

Graphira SMuFL font now available.

I was working on making this font (Graphira) 4 months ago by redrawing the joint from scratch in FL8. Below are some examples featuring Bravura's Settings (Graphira STD font) and Graphire Music Press settings, not 100% closer but with a lighter look (Graphira font) --- https://norfonts.ma/en/wp-cont...
