Please record the following as an enhancement request.
A quite commonly used notation for augmented steps is to draw a line through the
eventually elongated last line of the digit. In this case "Last line" refers to
the order the digit is written manually. This results in a typographic ligature
of the digit together with a plus sign.
In case of the augmented sixth the result should be like the following example
This is better readable then the result of the following snippet
< 6\\ >4
Similar should be possible together with the figures 2,4,5. Here the resulting
plus sign isn't rotated but its is lowered or highered with respect to the
\set figuredBassPlusDirection = #RIGHT
< 5\+ 4\+ 2\+ >4
A poor graphical representation is given in
http://www.robertkelleyphd.com/FiguredBass.pdf where the vertical position is
o.k., but it's not really a ligature.
It is quite obvious that the result may be depending on the font used for the
A possible notation might be to use the \+ modifier and switch between the
current and the intended behaviour with a property (e.g.
\set figuredBassPlusLigature = #TRUE)
