Re: SMuFL font comparision

The thing that sticks out to me the most is the appearance of the relative size of the half notehead versus the quarter notehead. Even though I know some half noteheads are exactly the same size as the quarter notehead, they all feel smaller, which doesn’t seem right to me. It’s an unusual circumsta...

Re: Alternatives to Adobe Creative Cloud

Inkscape 1.2 now has multi-page support. This allows you to import/export an entire PDF or a single page. It’s not perfect, but definitely a good and much needed step for the app.

Re: Beethoven brainteaser

Re: Flat beam question

I wouldn’t use a flat beam. I’ve always been in the camp that the beam should trend (i.e., slant) with the trend of the notes. The level of slant is debatable, but I would do *something* since it gives the eyes a cue of what the notes are *generally* doing so I can anticipate it. This is very import...
