Tell me if I’m crazy, but I can’t get over this problem. The dash in chord symbols, used to mean minor, is too small and thin in every font I’ve tried.
I am not knowledgeable about this topic at all but I know there are several different types of dashes/hyphens - maybe Dorico is using the wrong character? I’m guessing it’s using an en dash? A hyphen would be too short and an em dash would be too long, but I just wish it could be thicker. Maybe this needs to be its own kind of music text character or something. Again, I am not knowledgeable on this so please educate me.
From a distance, it’s really easy to miss the dash and play a minor chord as major or dominant. Both with triads and chords with extensions and alterations.
I also don’t like how low it is and how close it is to the letter before. In some fonts, in the chord symbol “A–”, the dash is actually contiguous with the letter A.
I really do not want to use “m” or “mi” if I don’t have to. If anyone has a good chord symbol font that might help, please let me know! Thanks!
