I’m realizing I think the cautionary accidental parentheses are just a touch heavy in context.
I’d like to either scale them down a bit or substitute another glyph so they aren’t quite so obtrusive. Is there a setting for this? Accidental Scale modifies both the parentheses and the accidental. I’m not seeing an obvious setting in Engraving Options or Notation Options, unless I’m overlooking something, nor anything in Font Styles or Paragraph Styles. I was assuming there was a setting in Music Symbols, and there are a lot of Parenthesis settings there, but not one for accidental parentheses.
(#) is a single glyph* in Bravura. One would hope to just redefine it as 3 glyphs with the parens in a different font. But I can’t find a place to do that. Interesting to discover that accidentals are not included among Music Symbols that can be edited.
*Edit: only a recommended ligature. Thanks for the clarification, Ben.
Yeah, that’s what I was attempting to do after not finding an Engraving or Notation Option, and was surprised there doesn’t actually seem to be an option for this. The default parentheses just seem a bit heavy handed to me. I’d love to substitute a more elegant pair of parentheses that are a bit lighter and thinner with less horizontal width, but perhaps this may not currently be possible.
We deliberately omit all of the symbols relating to accidentals from the Music Symbols dialog because they are better edited in the Edit Tonality Systems dialog, but it’s true that consequently you can’t edit the parentheses for accidentals. I’ll see about finding a way to square this circle at some point.
