Using MuseScore 1.1 and the jazzleadsheet template under WinXP/SP3, I've written a leadsheet with melody and chords. The global preferences under Style-->Edit Text Styles-->Chordname are set to MuseJazz @ 15 pt. Regardless of that setting, when first entering chords the font defaults to MuseJazz @ 17.06 pt.
As I need room above the systems for chordnames and extra text above that (alternate chords at a smaller point value, entered by selecting a note or beat and pressing CTRL+SHIFT+T), I've manually adjusted the font size of each primary chord symbol to 15 pt.
This works pretty well, but dominant 7th chords always display at 17.06 pt. These chords are rendered in a special way, as the "7" becomes a semi-superscript at a slightly smaller point size. I can force these chords to display at 15 pt. with no special rendering for the purposes of the current MuseScore session, but after saving and reopening the file (as .mscz or .mscx) the dominant 7ths will display and print at 17.06 pt with superscript.
How can I exert more control over chordnames? It seems that the chordname preferences I've defined aren't being applied, and even after manually resetting font sizes some chordnames ignore my instructions, instead adhering to a hidden, non-adjustable definition.
Has anyone else encountered this? Is there a fix?
