Music fonts

Is it possible to import music fonts to Scrivener?

If so, are there free font sets?

How does one import fonts of whatever kind to use in the program?

I am writing on book with a music context.

Thanks for any assistance.


For writing music I would suggest using a dedicated Scorewriter such as Sibelius or Finale. Both applications allow you to export the scores as image files which can be dragged and dropped into Scrivener. That’s what I do :slight_smile:

For simpler examples, maybe GarageBand is enough. Press Cmd-Ctrl-Shift-4, and drag to capture the example, then paste in Scrivener.

Obviously, complex examples, rich of captions, cna only be done with more complx and expensive scorewriting tools. Even if the free alternative LilyPond can produce great results, assuming you can program a little.


Thanks for your answers. I have Finale and Garage Band and will try these. I have no programing experience.
