Hello,

I defined a character style for the chords so that they would be printed as a superscript. Everything works fine until I have to use a flat ot sharp symbol in the chord designation. As an example, I may have a D Flat Minor 7th chord. I would represent that as a sequence of letters: D,the music flat symbol, m, 7. The style is defined to use Century Schoolbook 14 point positioned as a superscript. Since the flat and sharp symbols are not a part of the Century Schoolbook font, I use a TT font called MusicalSymbols for those two characters. I can insert these characters (symbols) in the appropriate place, but the line spacing of the text is almost double the 1.5 line spacing indicated in the song style even though the symbols are the same height as the other chord characters. No matter how I try to alter the character position attributes of the symbols, the line spacing of the song text is not altered. If a line does not use those symbols, spacing is correct. Since I am mixing fonts (Century Schoolbook and MusicalSymbols), I can't define a single style for the chord descriptor characters, or at least I don't know how to do that. Is there a way to accomplish what I want to do in OOo Writer?

Any help will be apprecited.

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
