TeX - LaTeX Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for users of TeX, LaTeX, ConTeXt, and related typesetting systems. It's 100% free, no registration required.

We have a friend who is trying to write his PhD thesis in LaTeX. In his thesis, he has to use old scriptures and medieval music notations (neumes). Unfortunately, for the kind of neumes (St. Gallen Neumes) he has to use, there aren't any packages. So we're looking for some (awesome) person, who could help us to find a way to displaying these scriptures in TeX/PDF.

We already found out, that there is a way to create own TTF's through graphics and Corel Draw, but this won't be enough to display them in the PDF later, right?

The notations should appear above the lyrics (similar to simple chord-symbols).

Anyone any ideas?

If you create your own ttf files, you can load them in Xe(La)TeX or in LuaLaTeX and produce your beautiful PDFs. By the way, have you taken a look at Lilipond? See here: lilypond.org/doc/v2.12/Documentation/user/lilypond/… –  NVaughan Jan 25 '13 at 13:08

I guess “for the kind of neumes (St. Gallen Neumes) he has to use, there aren't any packages” dismisses GregorioTeX? –  cgnieder Jan 25 '13 at 13:11

I recommend doing it in lilypond as suggested by @NVaughan then export as PDF, crop (using pdfcrop) and include in the document. If there're many, he might consider using lilypond-book which is a special tool for combining LaTeX and lilypond. –  tohecz Jan 25 '13 at 14:28
    
thanks so much for your answers! I think we'll try XeTex/LuaLaTex... Lilypond looks very interesting,too, but all the links concerning other notations are faulty... –  Coffeetree Jan 27 '13 at 15:52

1 Answer 1

I don't know if it is appropriate to include non-TeX programming language on this site, but about 6 years ago I wrote PC batch files to take TTF files and install them on my PC for LaTeX usage. I am using MiKTeX, so file locations may or may not be dependent on that. The program was for my own use, and so it would have to be customized for your own use (file locations, directory names, etc.). And if you have any questions, it could take me a while to try to develop an answer, because I haven't used it in a number of years. The good news is I installed well over 100 fonts on my W2K system with it, so I know it works, if the loose ends are resolved. I make no guarantees on how successful you will be, but you are welcome to it.

It has options if you are installing a single font, or up to four fonts as part of a font family (I didn't go beyond that).

It needs a copy of sed.exe, which you can get from gnu, as well as programs like ttf2tfm and ttf2afm, which are out there. It also invokes a few stencil files of mine, which it edits and uses, so I'll include those below, as well. Here goes...

mkTTfont.bat:

@echo off
REM  This file will create LaTeX fonts given a family of
REM  TrueType font files.  The files should be of the type:
REM   1) standard font
REM   2) + bold font
REM   3) + accented font (e.g., Oblique or Italic)
REM   4) + bold, accented font (e.g., BoldOblique or BoldItalic)
REM
REM
REM  Regardless of whether the accent is Italic or Oblique, this program
REM  will assign this accented font as "italic" as far as LaTeX is concerned.
REM  An "oblique" (also known as "slant") font will created by slanting the
REM  Standard and Bold fonts.  The default slant value of .167 may be 
REM  edited by the user.  Thus, with 4 font files, a total of 6 LaTeX fonts
REM  will be created, the four that are directly in the ttf files provided
REM  plus two slanted fonts created from the standard and bold-standard fonts.
REM  When only two font files are utilized, 4 LaTeX fonts will be
REM  created.  When only one font file is provided, 2 LaTeX fonts will
REM  be created
REM
REM  This program assumes your ttf files employ T1-WGL4 encoding, which 
REM  will need editing if it is otherwise.

If I forgot any files, let me know.

p.s. I should just add that, after I installed a font, I kept a style file with commands like

\newcommand{\AlteSchwabacher}[1][]{\fontfamily{AlteSchwabacher}%
        #1\selectfont}

so that \Alteschwabacher would place me in that font. The optional argument is for any other specifications I want at time of invocation, for example

As long as the main subject is (La)TeX and friends, you can post batch scripts, others posted perl or python and more. But then you should deactivate the TeX syntax highlighting, cf. Interface options for specifying language prettify. Add “language-none” (or simply “<pre>…</pre>” without indenting) in the case of batch scripts. –  Speravir Mar 5 '13 at 3:53
