One of two fonts for use with Sibelius 7 for Windows for typing into transparent textboxes for making incipits (for fifteenth-century and fourteenth-century music editions). This font and extra_mensural give MOST symbols needed, but for making sloping ligatures that descend one tone I use a different font. Using this font properly takes PRECISION, i.e. working with individual symbols at maximum zoom view in the host programme to get positioning right. To make extended oblique ligatures use ends of the half-symbols given.

Hello there, I have sent you a message. I do not know if you have received an e-mail, for you may had not checked that option when you created your account. So I have installed your fonts for Sibelius 7, the "meansural1" and "extra mensural"; but I don't know how to use them in Sibelius 7.5 - I think they probably can be used on this version aswell, if not I can use in Sibelius 7 -, can you help me on this?

I must ask you another thing: can you share your other font that you say you use to make sloping ligatures? Or maybe point me towards where it can be downloaded, or at least its name?

I mean: "sloping ligatures that descend one tone".

@Eärendil: you may have to wait for answers from him, the fonts are older and he isn't in the forum (he might not log in until he needs to check something or design other work?) Let's hope he received your e-mail.

Are you making your own font or changing his to suit your needs? There is a "tool of curves" made by Isaiah Garciahttp://fontstruct.com/fontstructions/show/832390/more_curves_1, with different curved shapes. Also look at his font 'Rapidly' to see the curves in action: http://fontstruct.com/fontstructions/show/824277/fs_rapidly. You could copy the curves you need, assemble to the right length and insert in the font you have.

@Aeolien, what you said is intersting, but I have almost no interest, for now, of creating fonts. Maybe much later, years from now. My questions to him, though, are of a very different nature.

If you know the answers to my first questions about Sibelius and this font, then answer.
