I have one of the general JW Lua scripts (also should work in RGP Lua) that takes notes in a selected measure and converts them to artificial string harmonics with the harmonic notated at the perfect fourth. That is, it takes the sounding notes as written and converts them to the artificial harmonics (two octaves down with a perfect fourth added as a diamond head). It’s one of Nick Mazuk’s scripts here. Very handy.
But today I started a new work and am using a SMuFL music font (Petaluma) and the fourth is notated with one of those humongous circles that usually result when a font character/glyph isn’t located. My fix (clunky though it is) was to use JW Change, replace it with a standard note head then apply TGTools to make it into harmonics. At least the transposition was done correctly by the Lua script.
But that says to me that many Lua scripts may not work properly with SMuFL. I know some of the JW Change functions do not, but didn’t realize that some of the Lua scripts may not work properly either if they need to create a specific character that is based on the pre-SMuFL conventions.
I’m going to dig into the script and see if I can figure out how to make it work, but just wanted to mention this issue. I’ll also apprise Nick.
