Font for Measure Numbers

Post by opus64 » Mon Feb 11, 2013 6:43 pm


Is there a way to change the Measure Number font from Italic to Plain that does not involve upgrading to top-tier version of Finale?

Welcome to the forum!

Since you are posting in the SongWriter forum, I assume that you are using SongWriter.

1) The measure number font is document specific (not program specific).
Take a look at all the Templates and Document Styles you have.
There just might be some of them that are set to a Plain-style measure number font.

2) I could be wrong here, but I don't think that SongWriter can change a document's measure number font.
Perhaps PrintMusic can do it?

Going by memory, no, you can't do it in either one.
