It's easy to reduce just the noteheads to a smaller point size AFTER entry, using Jari's Change plug-in. What, though, is the easiest way to make the default music font for a file Engraver with 23 point noteheads but 24 point for the other note elements? I don't mind doing it after entry with Jari's Change plug-in, but I was wondering…

Also, can one have different notehead point sizes in the score and in the linked parts (say 24 in a multi-stave full score with rather small staves and 23 or possibly even 22 in the parts)?

I can think of workarounds, but…

Set the default notehead font to Engraver 23.

However, the default notehead font size will be used both in the score and in the linked parts.

:) I just sent you a message, some seconds ago!

I think anyway that Engraver at 22 almost matches Maestro 24 (in visibility).

Can't be applied a staff style with different noteheads sizes and even fonts?

A Staff Style can change the size of the notehead.

I think it is introduced in version 2014 - if anyone can confirm. You could just choose another font file, but not size in older versions, correct?

2011 could do it. I think 2005 was able to do it.
