Reordering Figured Bass figures

Hello, I’m trying to copy out a source that occasionally figures a bass in a different order to the norm, is there any way of setting this in Dorico?

Welcome to the forum, Aaron. In a future version of Dorico you will have control over these kinds of compound intervals in figured bass representing specific voicings, but it’s not currently possible in Dorico 3.5.12. You may want to use the third-party Figurato font in the meantime to produce these kinds of figurations.

Actually, it is possible to re-order figured bass, by using ‘plus 1 octave’ numbers, and then checking the ‘Show compound intervals as simple’ switch in the properties.

Thus, 10,5 becomes 3,5.
