I really feel like creating a whole new font.
The problem I'm facing right now is: I can use my self-made otf fonts as markup.
If I use the same font as ChordNames, it seems like ChordNames is dictating what's a valid entry and what isn't.
That's the minor issue (I still think, displaying chord symbols as "normal" markup is fine too.) The bigger issue is:
Although my font (otf) HAS ligatures (and show up if the font is used on my system in other programs) - it
doesn't show ANY ligatures in lilypond... Can't make it work as of now.
I searched about it, and stumbled across people saying, that this was like an official bug. Others saying,
that it should be all working instead...
I'm using 2.18.2 on Debian Linux with Frescobaldi.
And: The ligatures I'm talking about are not standard ligatures (tied to a specific language), they're everything but standard.
But like I said, a normal Text-Editor (and even used on the web via @font-face) can render the ligatures just fine.
Any tips on:
- where to install the font (not so sure about that anymore...)
- how to encode the font in a way that lilypond recognizes ligatures
- just pointing out, that I'm stupid (that would be at least a valid excuse) :-)
Thanks a lot for your help.
