I presume this was done using the Figurato font as Lyric text, rather than the later built-in Figure Bass function?
Unfortunately, when Lyrics shifted to Paragraph Styles, Dorico now take into effect the bounding box of the font. In Figurato, this is extremely high – as part of the ‘trick’ it uses to create the stacked figures from one line of text.
In short: you’ll need to re-enter the numerals as ‘real’ figured bass. Or use a version prior to 4 point …1 ? I think.
It’s always worthwhile keeping a PDF copy of every document, so that you can print a clean copy, in the rare event that something like this happens, or if you can’t open Dorico for some reason.
Thanks Steven and Ben, yes now I remember having used the Figurato font for a while.
This explains it…
Yes I do have PDF versions of this, so no big issue. I will use the file for a down transposition for a singer.
