3.2.51 font-interface

Any symbol that is typeset through fixed sets of glyphs, (i.e., fonts).

User-settable properties:

font-encoding (symbol)

The font encoding is the broadest category for selecting a font. Currently, only lilypond’s system fonts (Emmentaler) are using this property. Available values are fetaMusic (Emmentaler), fetaBraces, fetaText (Emmentaler).

font-family (symbol)

The font family is the broadest category for selecting text fonts. Options include serif, sans and typewriter.

font-features (list)

Opentype features.

font-name (string)

This property is kept for backwards compatibility only. Use the fonts property instead.

font-series (symbol)

Select the series of a font. Common choices are normal and bold. The full list of symbols that can be used is: thin, ultralight, light, semilight, book, normal, medium, semibold, bold, ultrabold, heavy, ultraheavy.

font-shape (symbol)

Select the shape of a font. Possible values are upright, italic, oblique, and slanted (which is the same as oblique).

font-size (number)

The font size, compared to the ‘normal’ size. 0 is style-sheet’s normal size, -1 is smaller, +1 is bigger. Each step of 1 is approximately 12% larger; 6 steps are exactly a factor 2 larger. If the context property fontSize is set, its value is added to this before the glyph is printed. Fractional values are allowed.

font-stretch (symbol)

Select a condensed or expanded font, if available in the font family. Possible values are ultra-condensed, extra-condensed, condensed, semi-condensed, normal, semi-expanded, expanded, extra-expanded, and ultra-expanded.
