I received a file from a client in which the open parenthesis collided with the metronome mark. Here’s what it looked like initially:
Metronome text was set to Optima and Metronome music text was set to November.
I thought that might be the problem, but when I set the fonts to Academico and Bravura, it was only slightly better (screenshots in a later reply).
I hadn’t noticed it before,but now I can’t unsee it. To my eye, the space in a parenthesized metronome mark between the open parenthesis and the quarter note should be greater. Could this be considered? Thanks.
