(Re MS 3.6)
Is there a way to have fingering numbers appear to the right of notes by default, rather than just above or below them? This is a standard style in much of the music I notate (see screenshot).
Is there a way to quickly vertically align fingering numbers on chords? (I realize that, when their notes are close enough, you can just type them into the same text frame.) Doesn't MS have commands that vertically or horizontally align two or more selected objects (e.g. text objects)? The only similar thing I could find in the manual was selecting objects and giving them the same X- or Y-offset in the Inspector, but this had no effect; when I increased or decreased the one value shown, it simply added or subtracted the same amount from the selected objects' current positions, rather than aligning them at that position.
Why does nothing happen when I try to duplicate existing fingering? I've tried selecting it and using the "R" (Repeat) command; and copying it, selecting a new note, and pasting—but in both cases, nothing happens. Is fingering some sort of exception to the normal behaviour of objects in this way?
