When notating figured bass, the continuation lines (entered by adding an '_') are not drawn (correctly)


Am I doing something wrong or is it a bug?

Great!! (perhaps this can be clarified in the documentation? (it says 'Continuation lines are input by adding an '_' (underscore) at the end of the line. Each digit of a group can have its own continuation line:')

Unfortunately the line is still shortened when no new figured bass number is entered (animation)

In your animation, is there a particular reason to skip the F (no new figured bass number) since the harmony becomes different?

Not sure, because I do not practice the figured bass enough, but I would like to say that it is by design.
Nevertheless, to achieve this result, the solution (the workaround?) is to add a no-break space (Ctrl + Space) between measures 2 and 3.
See the GIF animation.

Indeed, entering a non-breakable space is a workaround which gives the desired output. (thanks)
I would be nice if entering a double underscore would always result in a continuation line.
Can I specify this somewhere as a feature request? (Issue tracker?)
