Campania

Font for Roman numeral analysis (music theory)

This font is inspired by the work of Florian Kretlow and the impressive Figurato font he developed for figured bass, as well as the work of Ronald Caltabiano and his pioneering Sicialian Numerals font. This current version of Campania is not directly based on either of these, however. Instead, it uses the glyphs from Doulos and adds somerelatively straightforward contextual substitutions and positioning rules to allow you to enter the most common symbols just by typing naturally.

To install Campania, download either the TTF or OTF files and follow the standard procedures for installing and selecting fonts on your system.

To use Campania, simply type as you normally would, and the formatting happens automatically. The common indications for inversions and seventh chords (e.g., 6, 7, 64, 643, 43) are superscripted and turned into appropriate vertically-stacked ligatures. When used in a context where this makes sense, "b" and "#" turn into flat and sharp, and "o" and "0" turn into diminished and half-diminished symbols, etc.

Campania

This font should work in any program that handles fonts reasonably. It is tested to work in MuseScore and in LibreOffice, and will probably work in the commercial alternatives as well.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
