Creating custom dynamics with the same font as common glyphs

When I try to create a custom dynamic glyph through playing techniques, I understand that I should choose the font dynamic music text font. I have seen on other posts here, that when people do this, they get the same font as the common dynamic glyphs, but this doesn’t seem to happen to me. I have tried changing the type from text to glyph and then editing the ‘glyph’ but it doesn’t have the font there.

You can use glyph like this.


Okay thank you so much, it works now!

That font style is usually set to a SMuFL music font, which has no alphabetic ‘text’ characters. The dynamics symbols in the font don’t use the letters m, p, f etc. for dynamics: they are in other character positions in the font. (As shown in the SMuFL dynamics range in jesele’s answer.)
