I appreciate the many ways that it’s possible to customize the appearance of chord symbols. But I have some issues…
- If I increase the size of the font for chord symbols, the flat or sharp symbol in the root of the chord (e.g. in F#, Bb) does not change size! Surely this is an oversight. If I increase the size of the font to make it more readable, then of course I need the # and b symbols to change accordingly.
- Some other symbols also do not change in size, e.g. the triangle used for maj/maj7. Again, this defeats the purpose of making the font larger
- I’d like to see some custom sizing options for various elements. For example, the “m” part of Cm. Currently I have 2 size options: normal, or the smaller superscript/subscript. Subscript seems too small for readability, but normal seems too large to me, based on the size of other chord elements. Being able to re-size other elements would also fix my previous issue, where the triangle and other things appear too small.
- I’d like to see some custom spacing options. Currently, in certain fonts, with a chord like Cm7, the m and 7 are slightly overlapping each other. Or, with slash chords where the bass note appears underneath, the slash is overlapping the bass note. There is currently no way to adjust this spacing.
I’ve been trying out different fonts for chord symbols, because Academico just seems too formal. I’ve found several I like, but the above issues create difficulties. The sizing issue of #, b, and other symbols occurs in Academico as well.
