Don,
The Font Map needs serious improvement...
I decided to create custom font map with replacing the Bravura with Sibelius Opus (I find it nicer than Bravura).. /The font map is attached below/.
There are four problems:

1. The X/Y positioning is very strange... some of the signs /like note flags/ have to be placed almost out of the X/Y window in order to look fine.
Import my font map and zoom to 400%... If you reset the X/Y everything on the score sheet will look terrible - out of proper position.
2. If you use the Mouse Scroll Wheel to list the font signs below the X/Y window.. it doesn't matter in which direction the wheel is scrolled
the list goes always to the beginning...
3. When using "Clear All" I expect that Overture will remove the customized Font Map and will bring the Bravura, Aloisen... etc. the original Fonts,
but nothing happens...
4. There is no way to add more symbols/signs than the squares, even the empty ones cannot be used... Would be nice if we are able to replace all symbols, signs, numbers... etc.
Overture doesn't allow full replacing, nor adding more of them...

Nor,
It would be better if you create SMuFL fonts... Creating of font maps is pointless...

Greetings :-)

Actually I enjoyed converting them because I like standards, so all apps can share.
Beware, that I have two more hand written fonts that I purchased a while back that have not been converted.
One or both of them will be released next year with Overture.

As for the conversion:
I just copied the characters from the old font into the new position in the table.
I had to make adjustments to the new positioning inside the font and inside Overture, but that was no big deal.
The only problem in converting was that at the time, Bravura(SMuFL ) was a moving target.
Several times Daniel several had to explain to me or fix a few things I found.
SMuFL has now settled down.


Hi Don,

I finally made the BopMusic font SMuFL compliant, I sent you a pm, have you got it? I'm now converting my RealScore, NorPen, and LeadSheet into SMuFL, yes a heavy task but it worth doing it anyway. Once remapped I will release the fonts for sale on my website.

Hi,

here is a screenshot of my last smufl' BopMusic font and text font. the fonts will be released asap once I tweak some glyphs.

Thanks a lot to scorist for his kind permission to use this sample score.
