# font-encoding and MeasureCounter

```Hi list,

```
I wanted to change the font of the MeasureCounter to standard roman font instead of feta number glyphs so i tried
```    \override MeasureCounter.font-family = #'roman
```
This didn’t have an effect but I found something in the LSR: According to http://lsr.di.unimi.it/LSR/Item?id=932
```    \override MeasureCounter.font-encoding = #'latin1
```
does the trick. But section A.18 of the NR states that font-encoding only allows the values fetaText, fetaMusic, and fetaBraces. And neither #'ascii nor #'utf8 have an effect.

```
I see here a bug but I’m not sure which one or two:
1. Is it a bug that overriding font-family doesn’t work?
2. Is it a bug that #'ascii and #'utf8 don’t work?
3. It *is* a bug that #'latin1 isn’t mentioned in the docs.

%%% MWE following

\version "2.19.47"

\new Staff \with {
\consists #Measure_counter_engraver
%\override MeasureCounter.font-family = #'roman    % no effect
%\override MeasureCounter.font-encoding = #'latin1 % only latin1 works
} {
\startMeasureCount
\repeat unfold 10 a1
\stopMeasureCount
}
