A good font with rests?

Tomas Valusek
Hello,

my question is not directly related to MuseScore, but ... I have created
a sheet with various note lengths to cut out and assemble rhythms from
them. This sheet is included as an attachement (Czech language, so there
are syllables for counting halfbeats). I need to include rests in the
same way, but don't seem to know about any font containing whole and
half rests as stand-alone symbols - they are usually combined from a
single symbol and a leger line. Do you know about suitable music font
with appropriate rest symbols? Thank you.

I assume you know already about these, they come up early in a "music
font" google search but just in case:

http://www.hindson.com.au/wordpress/free-fonts-available-for-download/

I don't understand what you mean about whole and half note rests. You
*need* a line above or below the black rectangle to distinguish
between them.

Hi Tomas,

you can try the lilypond fonts. The problem is that they are designed for use
in a music typesetter and not for a word processor. That means that the
character metrics may be not suitable (mainly the vertical position in my
experiance). But you can easily make your own ttf font from it with the
"fontforge" program (if you are using linux).

I've an idea:

We can use the free fonts of this site (http://www.hindson.com.au/wordpress/free-fonts-available-for-download/    or   http://www.icogitate.com/~ergosum/fonts/musicfonts.htm) for more preferences

Instead a single font, we'll have the option for use other fonts ! It will be fantastic !


And, a change: In note head, clef and beam options in palette you can put the mensural style


Thanks and good day
