Figured bass vertical placement


Is there a way to switch off the automatic vertical alignment of figures across the width of system? This function can be useful within ideal circumstances, but in systems where only one (or a few) objects (notes with ledger lines, etc.) protrude the staff, those objects cause the whole row of figures to move too far away from its staff to avoid collisions…


I’m afraid I don’t believe there are any options for this, no. You should find that using Select More to select all the figures in the system in Write mode before you switch to Engrave mode so that you can nudge them into the desired (majority) position before correcting the ones that need to be moved further away saves a bit of time.
