MusGlyphs is a font that modifies glyphs taken from Bravura and Academico and adjusts their positioning to make them easier to type a wide variety of musical symbols directly into a word processor, combined with text fonts, without needing to adjust baselines or point sizes, like this:
MusGlyphs works in any word processor or other software that supports ligatures and kerning. Make sure these features are turned on for the glyphs to display correctly. Included in the documentation are instructions for how to activate these features in Microsoft Word. Due to the size of the glyphs, when used in word processors in combination with text fonts in multiple-line paragraphs of text, fixed line leading will usually yield the best result with MusGlyphs.
Included with MusGlyphs are two versions:
- MusGlyphs Standard
- MusGlyphs Text (Regular and Bold), which allows the user to type ordinary text and musical symbols without needing to switch between two different fonts. To accomplish this, write text normally, and use the @ symbol to trigger musical symbols.
