Offsetting symbols in text(?)
Called it that because I'm not sure exactly what to call it. Here's the problem:
See attached. I had to use system text to get the red capo chords (putting chords above the concert pitch chords has been discussed to death; that's not the point this time). In order to get the proper sharp symbol instead of a number sign (or a pound sign or a hash tag, depending upon how old you are), I resorted to the F2 symbol set. But when I select the sharp sign, well, you can see where it lands: well below where I'd think it should land. (See first line for first example; but it's below the baseline throughout.) I would expect the symbol to align on the bottom with the baseline of the text, if not be elevated above as almost a superscript (almost, but not quite). But at least for Franklin Gothic Heavy, it doesn't. Without going into all the typefaces I have on my computer, is this a function of the typeface, or of the program? And in either case, can it be made to align on the baseline, in a future update if nothing else?
