I’m making my own custom music font right now, and after today’s progress, I’ve found out that the flag design I use makes the default beam thickness (0.5sp) too thick, so I tried making it thinner (probably 0.2sp, but I don’t have any way to test it yet). I’ve dug through the engraving option and didn’t find the option for that. And I’ve tried modifying the SMuFl metadata file (which does have the “beamThickness” key) but that does nothing, even after I switched to another font and back.
Below is a screenshot to kinda illustrate my point. Since the flag design I use is rather thin, the beam is too thick.
And so here I ask, will there be any support for adjusting beam thickness in the future, if it haven’t been available yet? And since it’s also related, I’d add that, if such thing is allowed, there shall be an option to adjust grace note beam thickness scale as well, since otherwise the beam for grace note would become too thin if I do set regular beam thickness to 0.2sp.
ps. unrelated to this, but it also seems that non-full size clefs aren’t affected by edits done on full size clefs, which might be considered a bug (as changing the 3 optional “clef change” glyphs also doesn’t help). Since I’m still working on the font it might be that I missed something, but per SMuFl specification say my modification should be enough, giving that Dorico is documented to ignore those smaller clefs and the spec says the software should scale down the full size clefs at render.
