Changing Font of Tempo Markings


Is it possible to change the font of the tempo markings? I’d like to change it to the Jazz font.

Thanks in Advance,

Yes, go to Engrave mode, then choose Font Styles… from the Engrave menu. In the drop-down menu, tempo text styling is split into Immediate Tempo Text Font and Gradual Tempo Text Font, you’ll probably want to change them both, in this case to Petaluma Text but you can choose whichever font you want there.

(From a stylistic point of view though, it might look very odd to have tempo text in a handwritten “jazz” style while keeping the classically typeset look for the rest of the score. But you do you, I guess :wink: )

For reference, here’s a diagram showing which fonts are used for which part of tempo marks.
