Finale SMuFL fonts now available as standalone download

MakeMusic have released installers for their new SMuFL fonts, so you don’t have to download the Finale 27 demo just to get the fonts.

Bear in mind that the installer will also install all the legacy Finale fonts, of which there are a LOT. It will also install JSON files for the Text fonts, even though these Text fonts are just text fonts, and not “music text” fonts like Bravura Text. If you keep the JSON files for these Text files, then things like Finale Jazz Text will show up as a Music font in Dorico’s Music Font dialog, even though it has NO music symbols.

On Mac, I would recommend using Pacifist, an excellent third-party installer app, which lets you browse through .pkg files and install selected files.
