Music Font Modification

I need someone to modify a specialized music font, which I use with Finale 2002.

The font is called Kidnotes. It’s produced by DVM Publications

When Kidnotes is installed in a computer it can also be read by Finale Notepad.

The idea behind it is fine – it displays note names inside the note-heads of a musical score, making the music notation easier to read.

Only problem is, the font is set up to have staff lines superimposed on the note names.

Thus the note G appears with a black line running through the serif of the white letter G, making the G look like a C. Similar problems occur for other notes written on staff lines.

Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to modify the font so that the letter names appear on top of the staff line, improving legibility of the font.

Don’t bother contacting DVM, or Finale. The former did not respond to my email and the latter says there is no better system.

This project may seem familiar to you from previous listings.
As a result of my correspondence with bidders on those listings, the project has evolved to the point where the goal is much clearer, and much more information has become available.
There is a specialized music font, called Kidnotes, It’s produced by DVM Publications (http://www.dvmpublications.com/kidnotes_information.htm)
When installed, Kidnotes displays note names inside the note-heads of a musical score, making the music notation easier to read.
I use the Font in a music-typesetting program called Finale 2002. You can download a demo of the latest version here (http://www.finalemusic.com/).

Problem is, the font is transparent.

Thus the note G appears with a black line running through the serif of the white letter G, making the G look like a C. Similar problems occur for other notes written on staff lines.
I want the font modified so that the letters are white, not clear.

After the font is modified, the output from Finale will resemble the “What it should look like” JPG in the ZIP file.

All the samples you should need are here:

Some people have told me that the problem is caused by Finale overwriting the note heads. However, Finale’s support team says otherwise. In their words:

“Our staff lines will not overwrite notehead fonts. The order in which the screen is drawn will not allow it.

To prove that the KidsNotes font is transparent, I have conducted a little experiment:
Attached is a screen shot of KidsNotes used in Finale 2008 with a colored background. I have used Finale 2008's colored background feature to expose the transparency problem in the KidsNotes font.
This can be reproduced by using the font on any program that has the ability to use a colored background or an alternate page color.

I should mention that modifying Finale is never an option. Anybody who claims to have this ability should also let you know that this is illegal and that you are working outside of the license agreement. Once you modify Finale, you lose support and the license agreement is broken, which would prevent you from upgrading to future versions of Finale.

I'm guessing the attached 'How-it-should-look' examples have been touched up by a graphic program or the publishers of the document have made their own font.”


Perhaps a program like Fontographer would be useful

To complete the project you must be able to send me a music file, or a jpg, you created with your modified font, showing the letter-names properly displayed,
I look forward to your bid.
