Expression text help.

Post by Barryjordan » Wed Oct 30, 2019 1:11 pm

Hi all

In Text Styles, expression text ist set to Opus Text Std, as it should be, I think. However, even using the context menu it is not possible to type "piu forte" or similar, because "piu" comes out as complete gobbledygook. I assuming something is wrong with my settings - but what?

Thank you for help!

the p in piu is in the expression music font. This means you had [ctrl/cmd] pressed when you entered it. to type piu f in expression text, don't hold [ctrl/cmd] until AFTER you have typed Piu.

Many thanks. I now understand what I have been doing incorrectly for a decade or so.
One question remains: where and how does one set the font for dynamics, then?

Best wishes
Barry
