I was trying to change the font for everything in Dorico, and I went to engrave>library>font styles, changed some fonts in some categories on the right and now it looks like this are all messed up with the font. I was curious how do I reset this? I was reading around and learned that the font has to be an SMuFL font, so I went to library>music fonts, but only saw 2 available fonts. Should there be more available here?
Assuming you’re running Dorico Pro 4 or later, you can reset everything via the Library > Library Manager dialog. If you have Dorico 5, you should see eight different font families in Library > Music Fonts by default.
Yes I am on Dorico 4. In Library Manager, where do I reset the fonts? So are there only 2 fonts available to use in Dorico 4?
You can reset an individual style using the “Revert to Factory” button:
It’s the circle with an arrow, next to the star.
Alternatively, as Daniel says, use the Library Manager. Click on “Factory Settings”,
then select Font Styles,
and then synchronise the settings.
Thanks for the detailed instructions! Looks like that worked- in the library manager I think I went to “font styles,” then clicked on a red arrow by where it said “some options differ.” Looks like it’s all fixed now! In the attached image, is there anything I need to fix with the red box with the word “petaluma” in it? Are there any other fonts I can use in Dorico other than the 2 listed in “music fonts” under"library"?
Yes, there are several other fonts you can use. If you have Dorico 5, you should get 8 different music fonts; as well as a few text fonts.
got it, I am currently on Dorico 4, are there any more. than the 2 listed in Dorico 4?
There are several other SMuFL music fonts that you can download and install for use in Dorico 4.
You have to install the font, and a “JSON” text file to a certain location to make the font available.
