Italics in text not working?

• Mar 4, 2023 - 16:37

I tried to change a dymanic marking (ff) to italics (MacOS) by selecting the text and pressing Command+I as the handbook shows, and nothing happened. Is this a bug or am I missing something? Thanks in advance.


Just don't italicise dynamics. They are (sort of) italic already
Other than that: the Cmd+i shortcut not working in text edit mode is a known issue. Or was, not sure, can't reproduce it on Windows 11 and with a 4.0.2 pre-release

Currently those shortcuts aren't working on many systems (a known issue already reported), but you can use the Properties panel instead.

BTW, note that normal dynamics aren't italic; they use a special script that looks italic but isn't. To entethose characters directly, type Cmd+Shift+f (similar for the other characters).
