Changing Instrument name font (short and long)

Ok, so when I go into setup mode and go into “Edit names…” and choose the font I want for the short and long instrument names, and select “save as default for instrument”, no changes happen in the score. I then go into Engrave mode and “Edit Font Styles” and change my default text font to my chosen text font…still no changes. I can’t see anything listed in Edit Font styles that indicate that they are linked to instrument names. How do I change the long and short instrument names fonts globally? Not sure if this is a glitch. Any help would be great. Thanks.

That is because Staff Labels are a Paragraph Style rather than a Font Style?

I’m coming over from MuseScore 3 and to be honest, I’m not used to having to go through so many tabs and windows. This will take some time to get used to, so I hope you can understand. What I don’t understand is, why is there the option to change the font on the short and long instrument names in “Edit names…”, but it doesn’t even work? Why is that there?

You have to select the text in the text boxes if you want to change the font of that text. It’s just like Microsoft Word…

(And to answer the inevitable “why?”: because you might want different bits of text in different fonts/styles/sizes within the same instrument name).

Thank you pianoleo. You have a wonderful day.
