Add music symbol font for OMR
I'm a PhD student working on OMR and I started using MuseScore with the IMETA branch in order to generate bounding box and class annotation in order to train a music object detector.
In the process of generating annotation, I would like to vary the music symbol font used in MuseScore to create more variation in my training data.
From what I have understood, MuseScore doesn't include the ability to install new music font because it would break portability of the MuseScore file.
However, portability is not a concern in my use case.
I tried to add a SMuFL compliant font Ekmelos: http://www.ekmelic-music.org/en/extra/ekmelos.htm in the fonts directory (MuseScore/fonts) of MuseScore, but that didn't work.
I would like to ask what would be the method to add a music symbol font to musescore, either what files I need to add, or which portion of code I need to modify.
I've started to get a little bit familiar with the c++ code while investigating the generation of annotations with the imeta branch, so I think I will be able to figure out how to do it on my own only with a little bit of advice.
Thanks again for your help
