Modify fonts across whole score?

It would be nice if in Layout-Page Settings there would be a button through which one would be able to increase font across all lyrics in a score.

Not to mention having a feature through which text would automatically increase or decrease in size in terms of fitting in a score so that things are more readable.

Now THAT would be a nice feature to implement, I mean, we all know that Sibelius is THE best score writing software out there, and, well, if MuseScore is going to be good, it'll have to at least be equal in features, if not even surpass Sibelius.

Thank you!


I don't understand what you mean. You can already change the font of all lyrics via style / text / lyric odd/even lines.

If you mean mean all text of any type, do be aware that text does automatically scale with overall score size - layout / page settings / space. It would probably be possible to write a plugin to increase all text styles proportionally without increasing notations ize, but I doint that would be a very good idea - it's unlikely you'd want tuplets or tempo size affected as much as lyrics, for instance.

Changing the basic font face for all text styles at once - not size, but from Freeserif to something else - now *that's* something I think could be useful.
