Problem with Chordname Font Size

by design

Trying to add chordnames to a guitar part. I set the chordnames font size to 10pt, but when I enter the chordnames, they show up as 6 pt. I have tried to hit apply in the font dialog, then save, close, and re-open, but it doesn't seem to work.

Thanks in advance.

This is just a natural consequence of the very small scaling factor you have set in Layout / Page Settngs - only about 2/3 the size of a standard part. Everything in a score is scaled accordingly. If this part was generated from a score template, you should increase the scalng to something more normal before generating parts. A typical part would have a space setting of around 1.7mm (the actual default os 1.764 IIRC).

In the future, it's better to post in the support forum when you have questions about how things work, and only if it turns out to be an sctual bug - and one that still exists in the developmenet version - should an issue be filed in the tracker, and if/when you do som do hot assign it to yourself nless you ntend to go into the source code to fix it :-)
