I’m having difficultly figuring out how to make point sizes for different types of text equivalent and was wondering if anyone could explain when text is scaled and when it is not. Take the following example where everything is 14pt Bold staff-relative except for the top text which is 14pt bold in a text frame:
The Rehearsal Mark Font and Immediate Tempo Text Font are both set to 14pt bold staff-relative and are the same size. They are both larger than the other 3 examples though! As the top text is in a text frame, I am assuming the size of the staff would have no effect on it. The other two are just 14pt bold Shift-Alt-X and Shift-X text so I would assume they would be staff-relative and scale to the staff, correct? Or does typing in a point size override any automatic scaling that might done? If I wanted to create some System text that is the equivalent point size to my Tempo text, how do I go about doing that?
This of course leaves out score/parts discussion too. Do most of you just use 2 files at the very end of the project? One with the font sizes and default positioning set for the score, and another for parts? Just trying to get my typography workflow together, thanks!
