MuseJazz, a new handwritten music font in MuseScore 3?
I just merged a first prototype that adds an handwritten, jazz inspired, musical font to MuseScore 3 !
In MuseScore 2, we included MuseJazz, a font used only for text, chordnames etc... Along the years, many users requested a handwritten look for their score. We will try to answer this request in MuseScore 3.
In master, the existing MuseJazz font is now MuseJazz Text and a new SMuFL compatible musical text font is added and called MuseJazz. This font has been created by Abraham Lee from Music Type Foundry.
To change the musical font, you can go to Style > General > Musical Font. You will notice a new checkbox, currently labeled "use style settings for the font". If checked, MuseScore will change some style settings in a manner complementary to the design of the font. Please try a nightly build, and let us know what you think of the new font!
