Realbook - Fakebook Layout - Jazz Fonts

Post by woocaash »

Dear Dorico users
I purchased Dorico recently. I am in the middle of watching all 100 YouTube videos. So far I have watched 30 of them.
I already know that this program is very powerful and I will use maybe 10% of it.
What I do is just single lead sheets with chords.

I would like to have results similar to those found in Realbooks and Fakebooks.
How to configure Dorico to have a similar layout ?
How many fonts Dorico has ?
Which one should I use to have nice real book layout ?
I also read somewhere that you can purchase fonts separately ?
Is it worth it ?
Are external fonts working 100% and are compatible with Dorico ?

What I also don't like is the chord symbols with "/" bass root.
In Dorico the bass is next to the chord which makes it too long especially when the chord is already complicated.
I would like the root bass to be under/below (at angle) to the chord.

I attached files to compare. dorico vs realbook

I will appreciate any help and guidance regarding this.
Thank you

and also I attached 2 files #1 & #2 that for me are pretty clear, easy to read and look interesting.

I'll let someone handle the font questions, but the diagonal line option is in Engraving Options:

As far as I know, the only jazz-style SMuFL font is one of MuseScore's, with which I have no first hand experience. Dorico only has one jazz font, but let me tell you that Petaluma is the best I've seen!
