Couldn’t find an appropriate post…
For a test, I exported some of my Sibelius files in musicXML and imported them into Dorico and Newzik, an iOS app that I am currently exploring.
Both apps replaced the fonts I had originally chosen in Sibelius.
Assuming musicXML files contain information about the font initially used, I am surprised that Dorico does not seem to see the Sibelius fonts on my system. I thought that there is a somewhat established interchangeable standard regarding music fonts?
Also, I first thought iOS doesn’t know of any Inkpen2/Reprise/Helsinki or Opus fonts – but then again, I have Scorch installed on my tablet and the partitions do look exactly the way they look in Sibelius, too, so the fonts are somehow installed on the tablet, although it seems only Scorch has access to them.
Is there a way to cause Dorico to use the fonts originally chosen, although they are not Dorico fonts in the first place?
And, although this is off-topic in this forum, is there a way I can cause Newzik to use the fonts that seem to be installed on my tablet via Scorch? NB I even went to downloading an app called AnyFont to install the fonts in question on the tablet, but to no avail.
