Easy way of swing indication?

Post by gogollny »

Hello,
Is there an easier way of writing swing indication than mentioned here:

viewtopic.php?f=246&t=151856&p=1010413& ... g#p1010413

?

I dont get this to work, somehow just the "=" is copied... is there no other way?

Thank you

I'm afraid not at the moment. Metrico is the best option for the time being.

Gogollny, can you be more specific about your problem?
Where are you trying to input the swing indication? `ee=3qe` will (should?) work in system text objects, but it won’t work in the tempo pop-over.

The formula described above is specific to Metrico, a font that Florian designed specifically for metronome marks and tempo equations. It won’t work for any other font.
