Changing chord symbol fonts

You can change the formatting of the text fonts used for chord symbols project-wide.


  1. In Engrave mode, choose Engrave > Font Styles to open the Edit Font Styles dialog.
  2. Select one of the following fonts from the Font style menu:
    • Chord Symbols Altered Bass Separator Font

    • Chord Symbols Font

    • Chord Symbols Music Text Font


      When using the option to show the word on instead of a slash or line to separate a chord from its altered bass note, you can edit the font used for that word by editing Chord Symbols Altered Bass Separator Font.


      We recommend that you do not edit Chord Symbols Music Text Font, which is set to Bravura Text by default. This can only be set to a SMuFL-compliant font intended for use in text-based applications.

  3. Activate the following options, individually or together, to change the corresponding aspect of the font:
    • Font family

    • Size

    • Style

    • Underlined

  4. Click OK to save your changes and close the dialog.
