Appearance of figured bass

The appearance of individual figures is determined either by the default settings in Dorico Elements or your popover entry, depending on whether you instructed Dorico Elements to follow your entry literally when you input each figure.

When inputting figured bass, by default Dorico Elements interprets your entries and applies its default settings for the appearance of figured bass to them. You can specify that you want Dorico Elements to follow your entries exactly for individual figures, for example, if you are reproducing a piece of music and know in advance exactly how you want figures to appear.

You can reset individual figures that you input with the figured bass input setting Follow input literally so they follow the default settings, and you can fix the current appearance of individual figures.

Figured bass in Dorico Elements uses a bold roman font by default.

Figures appear as signposts if Dorico Elements either does not normally show them, such as third intervals, or cannot identify the bass note for them, such as on a rest.
