v27 Update: SMuFL Clefs
The new SMuFL fonts in Finale provide us with a lot of new clefs to choose from. I’ll give you a tour of what exists and what you can do with them. In addition, this video takes a deeper dive into some of the technical aspects of the Clef Designer that I didn’t cover in the previous Corralling Clefs videos. Specifically, how accidentals in Key Signatures are oriented for each clef. This information is more relevant now that there are more clefs to choose from. The bottom line is that you have to be careful about which clefs you edit and how.
