Pardon what may be a dumb question , but how does one go about actually entering Bravura Text characters, e.g. A flat symbol in a timpani tuning cue? I can’t figure out the magic words. Thanks!
A valid question. Until something more like a symbol browser is created (hint, hint), here’s how to add a symbol from Bravura as text:
- Go to the SMuFL gitbook, for example, where the standard accidentals are (https://w3c.github.io/smufl/gitbook/tables/standard-accidentals-12-edo.html)
- Select the glyph you want (just like you are selecting normal text, since the symbols ARE text)
- (back to Dorico now) Set the font to be “BravuraText”
This is awesome, you can also make harp pedal charts this way.
Yep, but the app team needs to provide a much easier way of entering these symbols to begin with…
That would be very cool. It took me about an hour to figure out how to create this -> screenshot. You quite need it a lot in Jazz.
John mentioned it in one of his last videos, but he was just like:‘I created it in another project’ but didn’t explain how he did it and used copy-paste - now I know why

This was of great help again…super !
Saves a lot of time - especially with Florian’s Font.
