Producing a soprano line degree with a ^ inverted cap over the top

• Nov 20, 2019 - 16:29

I am trying to type a degree number e.g. 1^ 3^ 5^ with a cap over the top rather than on the right hand side - please advise?

Oh, for Heaven's sake, you just put one text string near another. Sorry, you do not get the prize:( I need a way to have caret-adorned numbers in the midst of extensive text strings, the way it is now possible to insert stacks of Campania figures denoting chord interval degrees. Nope, still need.

Oh, I see, the OP's "name" was 1903773 or whatever. I converted it to hex and couldn't find Unicode character 1D0B0D anywhere.....hah.

I doubt that there is a way now. I'm sure, on the other hand, a font could be prepared with carrot-topped (as it were) numerals and maybe other outré needs, similar to Campania, but it would have to be packed on-board to be usable for posted scores, and it is not worth doing until there are other calls for such.

Other than Webdings, none of those fonts are in my MS. Your score on my machine shows ugly overstrikes in the middies of the numbers, which is as far as I was able to get earlier, not as good as Firefox renders the characters above (can't say what they look like in your browser, or for that matter, anybody's).

Oh, that's getting interesting. I think without screen-copy images, none of us can be sure we are seeing or talking about the same thing, and it is not only browser-dependent, but environment-dependent, depending upon what fonts MuseScore can see.

What I fear most is that this formula (unicode diacritical overstrike, as intended), cannot be relied upon in a cross-system way, leading me back to wish that "carrot-topped" numerals appeared as such in a dedicated region of a dedicated font.

Can someone with a Linux post a score privately with that text in OpenSymbol, and see if the site does it correctly? Supposedly that is Linux, too, and it just might work (in which case all i need do to publish such scores is get my Mac to see it)....
