Curly braces in Leland, Bravura, MuseJazz and Petaluma don't scale properly when extended to more staves
P1 - High
S3 - Major
First of all, why is the Brace Item Icon so thin?
I couldn't find it! And I thought it did not exist!
Sorry if it's just me...
NOT FOUND: BraceItemIcon.png
Now what I had in mind... Instead of having this:
Clearly, you can see the difference is that in 1. the "stretched" brace which connects 6 staves, extends to the left side, towards the left paper edge, while in 2. it won't extend like so.

There's a missing image 'BraceItemIcon.png'?
In reply to There's a missing image? by Jojo-Schmitz
It shows the brackets palette, just to show that from far the Brace item kind of looks unclear, like a simple line.
This BTW is not a problem with Emmentaler and Gonville, but is with Leland, Bravura, MuseJazz and Petaluma

I'm not sure what those are... fonts?
The palette used to use Bravura, but now uses Leland I think

So they are fonts... oh you are talking about they way they look in the palette?
Well, actually 2 issues: the curly brace in the palette looks too thin and tiny and for fonts other then Emmentaler and Gonville (which IIRC draw the curly brace 'manually' rather than taking the SMuFL one) those braces don't scale properly.
And that isn't a missing feature, but a downright bug IMHO, one that exists since quite long, but now with Leland becoming the new default gets much more visibility
I'm not sure how they extend in other fonts so I don't know if this title is the most proper for what I had in mind.
What I want people to focus on in my post here is the "style" of the braces in the 2nd image, the way that it extends in straight lines. Well it's not that I dislike the curly style, but the it's obvious in the curly style that it has been stretched unlike in the 2nd image... I personally like the style in the 2nd image. I don't know if anybody else likes it.

I like it wider (Bravura)
