I would like to use Bravura in an upcoming publication I am beginning work on. Some of the work will include inputting musical text (the numbers for time signatures, accent marks, etc.) into a graphic program (such as Pixelmator), and then manipulate the graphic to highlight the point of discussion (maybe make the accent red, or the make the stave lines very faint and focus on the certain notes, etc.). Right now I am having a tough time trying to work with Bravura and Bravura Text as there is a lot of white space around the characters. There are ways of working around this in Pixelmator, but it is still a little cumbersome to get to the point of making it easy to work with.
I am curious if this was by design? Is this needed to work with Dorico and the SMuFL standard? Or is this just what has come up so far?
