Boxed Text Font (updated)

Hmm, very interesting. Well, I know a new font project like this can really get out of hand making changes, so no problem if it isn’t something that is easy to fix. Thanks!

I guess your using FontCreator for making musGlyph, I used to use it in 2003, and hinting/smoothing font on such software is tricky,

necesito ayuda, cómo se instala la fuente Norboxes en Dórico, qué tengo que hacer… Gracias

I need help, how to install the Norboxes font in Doric, what do I have to do… Thank you



I will later create two installers for macOS and Windows.

Thanks a lot for your support my friends, NorBOXES v1.2 fonts will be soon available on

only tangentially related, but regarding music fonts:

is there a music font where the accent mark > is vertically narrower? I find that too many fonts use a really wide open accent symbol, I prefer a tighter, more closed version.

See FredGUnn’s font comparison here (scroll down):
[Additional Music Fonts - #22 by FredGUnn]
Finale Engraver has a nice one.

Have a look at my website too: :wink:


It would be nice if you could make the same type of comparison as FredGUnn’s for your NorFonts. Sometimes it’s better to see just the symbols without any music. As the old saying goes, “can’t see the forest for the trees”.

I will…someday.

by the way, Nor, the score and parts where I used your new font is going out to the orchestra in a few week.
this is after the premiere, a few changes were brought to the score (musically), and now I also get to make the parts look better with boxed instrument names :grinning:


Nice!! Après tu me laisses ma petite part du gâteau :smiley:
