• Dec 18, 2014 - 23:32

So... Gootville SMuFL 1.0 is a "new" font for MuseScore 2.0... bla, bla...

- all glyphs designed by me :D
- original name of font :D
- SMuFL :D

Real changes:
- sizes of glyphs in GootvilleText: codas, pedals, etc.

Ok, thanks: lasconic, Thomas and Jojo-Schmitz. Maybe the name is stupid but... is similar to Gonville and associate with original name.

I'll issue an one update to this font (before Christmas). I have a good idea to fix problems with noteflags, so this problem will be fixed by me. Question to You, lasconic - which glyph is used by MuseScore as serif tablature clef?


In reply to by Jojo-Schmitz

It will be a fix for Gootville font(s) - in current week or at the beginning of the next week.
I see that someone used "the folding" dynamics... Nice, right... but this is a new (annoying) task for me...

I'll write when the patch will be ready for download.

Thanks for PR, Jojo-Schmitz. I think that now should be without any problems :D Otherwise, You'll write a new post here - I'll try to fix it, etc. - a known procedure.

On my computer works correctly:
- my OS: Windows 10 Technical Preview build 9926 64-bit PL,
- MuseScore build: MuseScoreNightly-2015-02-16-1808-c0a13fc.

This problem is on Your computers, my Dears. On my computer everything works correctly. I exported this score to PDF and I opened in FontForge - Date: 16-2-2015 - the newest compilation...

GootevilleText.otf???!!! - font name is: GootvilleText.otf... Where You have "E" in filename - Your typo or Your joke? Very poor joke... :D On my OneDrive name is correct...

And something else - Why the newest Nighly is displaying this font correctly? On the screenshot You have build number...

Dear Thomas and MuseScore Team...

Please do not inform me about errors/bugs/typos resulting from Your side. I respect my time and I expect respect of my time from You.
Please also keep Your standard of translations, etc.

For rectification:
1. I'm not MuseScore user - I'm NoteWorthy Composer and Finale user. And I've licenses for these programs.
2. I'm not Gootville, Jazzy and other MuseScore fonts user - I've my commercial and created by me fonts.
3. MuseScore is my hobby only. Hobby - not bringing me any money from all my hobbies...

Dear MuseScore Team, I'm 26 years old and I'm too old for these games. However, I play chess very well...

Thanks for reading and greetings to You, Thomas and MuseScore Team,

"The font is finished, the translation is finished, so - goodbye, Gootector."(?)
I've a feeling that You are not satisfied with my help for MuseScore...

Personal question to You, Thomas - What was so unprofessional in my post? - I said that was the joke? Please, let's be serious in some cases.

In reply to by Gootector

It's the usual problem that it is sometimes hard to determine whether something written is a joke or not. I certainly took what you said as a joke, and it didn't seem unprofessional to me, but someone else may see it differently. It probably doesn't help that for many people English is a second language. It's hard enough to understand what people mean when both writer and reader are using their first language.

So I don't think anyone meant to offend anyone, and I am sure your efforts to improve MuseScore are very much appreciated, Gootector.

And I wanted to introduce lock down the borders, sanctions, embargo... :D

Seriously: I understand everything - bad day, moodiness... but I don't understand one thing - So why do these situations arise? I hope that situations such as these will not reoccur.

I guess you're right, Jon. English is very ambiguous.
