Time signature font styles

Different time signature designs use different font styles. You can edit the formatting of fonts used for time signatures in the Edit Font Styles dialog.

  • You can open the Edit Font Styles dialog in Engrave mode by choosing Engrave > Font Styles.

The following fonts are used for time signatures:

  • Time Signature Font

    Used for standard time signatures and large time signatures that use the Normal, Narrow, serif, or Narrow, sans serif design types. Must use a SMuFL-compliant font family.

  • Time Signature Plain Font

    Used for time signatures using the Plain font design type. Can use any font family, but we recommend that you use narrow fonts for large time signatures.


Changes made to font styles apply to the entire project, including part layouts.
