calculating font size
I am trying to find out what the best font size for my Powerpoint presentations with music created with NWC.
Therefore I take a song, print it to GIF and insert it into a Powerpoint, changed the font size (more generally: I changed the staff metrics) and repeat that operation). I used the staff metrics 26, 25.5, 25, 24.5 and 24.
I do not see the difference between the several printed GIF files. Even when I compare the GIF's, they are the same.
What did I wrong?

Kind regards,
Guido

The margins in the song are not compatible with any of my printers.
You don't specify what size paper you are using.
I don't have the fonts in the song.

That said, I see a difference between 24pt and 26pt, consistent with what I would expect.
