… details how to do this with the text popover. Seems ok, but I can’t seem to reduce line spacing so it looks really bad. I’m transcribing Bach BWV 998 for 7-string guitar and really need to be able to designate tuning.
Is there better way (native to Dorico) or am I stuck with this?
Are you sure you’re using the Bravura Text font via the Music text character style, rather than using Bravura itself? Bravura has a huge line-height, while Bravura Text is designed for use inline with regular text fonts.
Yes, although I originally chose Bravura (with the enormous line height), Bravura Text is still too large. In the last image above, the bottom tuning is Bravura Text while the top is using “Insert Music”. For the bottom (using Bravura Text), if I reduce character size, it collapses the space, but for a reasonable representation, the font needs to be (too) small.
