How to round corners

An easy question, I hope!

I would like to round the corners of this slash:

But when I ty to add nodes, they're always square boxes, not curves. Thanks.

Re: Ligatures not working?

Yes, I know it’s quite complex and a bit big, sorry! It’s really not random though. Here’s a short video that shows some of the things it does: https://youtu.be/EBF5bJUPLK4

And no problem, I think we will just have to push the Finale team to address it. Thanks.

Re: Ligatures not working?

Sorry for the the confusion, MusGlyphs works correctly in Finale, but MusAnalysis doesn’t. Here’s the project file: https://www.dropbox.com/s/go493uietvro4 ... 1.fcp?dl=0

Re: Ligatures not working?

I tried exporting the font using the most recent beta of FC14, but it still didn't work in Finale. UPDATE: after hours of testing, I have discovered that deleting the capital M glyph makes it work. Sort of. Most of the ligatures now appear. Kerning and contextual alternates seem to work. But strange...

Re: Ligatures not working?

Hi everybody, I’m very sorry for the bump, but several days of testing with some colleagues have gotten us nowhere. Can anyone suggest where we might look in the font to start identifying an issue? To clarify, I know there’s nothing wrong with the font itself, but rather with how Finale is reading i...

Line overlap possible?

My font has some glyphs that protrude pretty far above and below the normal ascender and descender metrics. If I leave the metrics at typical values, these glyphs are cut off in a word processor. But if I set the ascender and descender values to the maximum required by the contours, the spacing in t...

Re: Ligatures not working?

Finale support has no idea what the problem could be. I have tried a couple things: - Deleted all contextual alternates, no success - Deleted half of the font glyphs to reduce the size, no success - Exported as true type, no success - Deleted all of the glyphs that were extremely large, no success -...

Re: Ligatures not working?

Thanks, I tried removing ARI (not sure how it got there), but it didn't solve it. I'm still stuck.

Re: Ligatures not working?

Sorry to ask again, but can you give any suggestion about what might be the difference between the two fonts? I'm unable to figure it out why it does not work on Windows. I'm a bit desperate, since we have rolled it out already. Thanks.

Re: Ligatures not working?

Unfortunately exporting from FC14 did not fix the problem.

Ligatures not working?

I'm testing this new font, MusAnalysis , on a number of music notation programs. Only one major program, Finale, is not recognizing ligatures in this font, and only on Windows (it works correctly on Mac). However, this other font I created, MusGlyphs , does display correctly in Finale for Windows - ...

Re: Extending beyond canvas?

Oh, hmmm... how would that work exactly? I haven't used multiple substitutions before and am not clear on how exactly to do it.

EDIT: I figured it out. Pretty straightforward. Thanks!

Re: Extending beyond canvas?

Update: no, it doesn't work. When I try to type these characters into an external program, the glyphs cut off around 11,000 units to the right.

Is there a way I can change this behavior?
