There was a discussion the other day about writing time signatures into standard text, and I decided to try my hand at creating a font to do that.
This font uses Bravura glyphs and scales them appropriately to use with text, including ligatures. The idea is to be able to type directly and intuitively for the needed musical glyphs without needing to adjust baselines and font size.
The time signatures are created using ligatures.
Please give feedback on how it works for you (especially on Mac), and what ideas you have for expanding it. I’m very new to Font Forge so it’s likely there are a lot of mistakes. Let me know if the size and kerning looks ok.
Also, I’m using Bravura glyphs, so I want to make sure to give proper credit for that.
