hi, I’ve searched the forum for similar threads but couldn’t find any
wonder how to import custom fonts to Dorico? both text and music (note) fonts
I tried downloading a serif style font and pasted the file to Dorico’s fonts folder (it’s an opentype file while the rest where truetype , not sure what does that mean) but the font did not appear when I restarted Dorico to choose it from the font list. Not sure why that doesn’t work. Same about music fonts, where should I put 3rd party files so Dorico can read them?
a btw suggestion, Dorico desperately needs a SEARCH options for the font list… it is very long and to get to something I need at the bottom of the list for every other object is tedious. It would be also ideal for a way to see how the font looks before commiting to basically knowhow to fonts in the font list look like. The best suggestion would be is upon hovering above a font from the umenu the highlighted text will change to that font , and will only keep it if you commit a right click. another option is to put some example letters in said font right next to each one similar to Microsoft Word.
