Changing tablature font size for some tabs, but not others

• Feb 7, 2023 - 03:03

I've seen a previous comment stream on how to change the font size of tablature (for stringed instruments) using the Staff/Part Properties > Advanced Style Properties approach. But, in using that approach, all of the tabs in the score will be changed. I would like to know if it is possible to select certain tabs and change them to be in a bigger font, while leaving the un-selected tabs to remain their normal size. Reason I'm interested in this is that I have seen chord-melody scores in tablature form, and they show the tabs for the melody in a large size font, while any tabs that constitute embellishments of the melody (e.g., added notes, chords, etc) are shown in a normal size font. When learning/playing a chord melody arrangement, I find that this "two size" font approach helps greatly in differentiating what is the (raw) melody and what are the embellishments.

Any thoughts on whether this can be done in Musescore would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
