Re: Simplified "Stoic" Sagittal for 13-limit tonality diamond use

My next job is to update the update the JSON metadata files (for both SMuFL and Bravura) to what we'd want them to be for a future SMuFL/Bravura release that included the Stoics. I proposed here , that the SMuFL names for the Stoics could be the same as the SMuFL name for the corresponding Spartan o...

Re: Simplified "Stoic" Sagittal for 13-limit tonality diamond use

I decided to go all the way, and add them to Bravura-S now. So in testing them, you'll have to deal with the less-convenient non-consecutive code points. Sorry.

Re: Simplified "Stoic" Sagittal for 13-limit tonality diamond use

Nick, don't spend any more time on my previous upload. Sorry. I just tried copying those glyphs to a copy of Bravura and found that they no longer passed validation, due to non-integer coordinates. When I investigated why some coordinates suddenly grew fractional parts, just through being pasted int...

Re: Simplified "Stoic" Sagittal for 13-limit tonality diamond use

The next step was to convert the new symbols into a form compatible with the Bravura font. The main difference being that it uses 1000 fu per em (250 fu per staff-space) where we've been using 2048 fu per em (512 fu per staff-space). We designed them using 512 partly because that's the TTF (true-typ...

Re: How to install the Bravura font

Here's the zipped Windows installer for the fonts Bravura.otf and BravuraText.otf version 1.392. This is the first version to comply with SMuFL 1.4.

Re: Simplified "Stoic" Sagittal for 13-limit tonality diamond use

I agree with your changes, except that when, for the double scroll on a space, you increased the sub-pixel-sized semicircular whitespace between the upper scroll and the staff line (a good idea), you decreased the sub-pixel-sized triangular whitespace between the lower scroll, the shaft and the staf...

Re: Simplified "Stoic" Sagittal for 13-limit tonality diamond use

Regarding the last exchange we had, Dave, about the readability of the symbols, I have taken another stab at them myself. Since I have Dorico and can cross reference them on the staff, I felt that this might help us streamline the process a bit. I edited the double and triple dent symbols to maximi...

Re: "Sagispeak"

In the case of triple-p, I think it should be acceptable to collapse either the first two p's or the second two p's, i.e. I think either php or pph (fp or pf) should be allowed. It seems so far on this thread we've only looked at the first of these two options. That's unsurprising because as Englis...

Re: Simplified "Stoic" Sagittal for 13-limit tonality diamond use

That's settled re the code points. The Stoic symbols will be at the 18 code points from U+E40C to U+E41D, and the Stoic range will include two spare code points at U+E41E and U+E41F. So I have updated the WinCompose sequences to include the Stoics. I consider the Sagispeak spellings to be settled to...

Re: Simplified "Stoic" Sagittal for 13-limit tonality diamond use

You're right, Nick. The double and triple scrolls are still not good enough for prime time. They still lose too much against the staff lines. So it's back to FontForge for me. After we have outlines that we're happy with, the next step is to copy them into a modified version of the Bravura font, wit...
