editing a preset font

• Sep 17, 2021 - 23:25

I really like the Palatino Linotype font, but I run into spacing problems when writing Chord Symbols because of the gaps writing accidentals creates (picture below). Through reading past forum posts I've found that I could just switch to a font like FreeSerif that doesn't have these spacing issues, but if it's possible and not too complicated, I would love to edit the Palatino Linotype font to shrink down the space around the flat symbol, just because I like how it looks. I understand this is a bit of a strange question and perhaps this isn't the best place to ask a question about editing fonts, so if that's the case please feel free to direct me somewhere that would be better suited to answer. Thanks everyone in advance!

The reason for that extra space is because Palatino doesn't have the flat symbol at all, so for that one symbol MuseScore is falling back to a different font.
Do check the font license for Palatino before attempting to change it.
