Text styles

Flat lets you customize the styles of the different text elements in your scores. To customize the text styles used in your score, open the Layout Settings, next to the print button.

On our desktop web app, this is usually located on the right of your screen, or in the “Document” toolbar. On our mobile app, click on the edit button on the top of your screen.

Implementation notes: Default fonts

Before March 2018, the default font was Noto Serif. This default font has been changed on March 2018, and the new one is now URW Century Schoolbook L (licensed under GNU GPL v2). The Noto Serif font remains available in the list of font families.

When using the music font Petaluma, the default font will automatically be set to Petaluma Script.
