Hello, I am copying a manuscript and want to include the original Figured Bass numbers.
I quite often have to input suspensions, like 6, 4->3
I am aware the original copyist did not care much about the exact positioning of the numbers, and I would like to replicate this ambiguity by just literally copying what I see.
In Dorico by using the Figured Bass Popover I would type:
[Shift]+G 64 [Enter] 3 [Enter] and get this result:
If I instead type:
[Shift]+G 6,4->3 [Enter] I get this result:
… which looks close to my source.
However, if I would decide to edit the edition and move the suspended 3 later into the bar, how would I actually place the 3 onto beat 2 or beat 3 - without inputting complicated code - and without extension/suspension lines appearing? So basically moving the 3 onto beat three for example, I could just input it on beat three. How could I easily put it onto the second line (where the 4 sits)? I tried [Shift]+G ,3 [Enter], but Dorico does not recognise the comma here.
I have a lot of these…
