Hi,

Someone just asked a (different) question concerning figured bass
alignment on the French users mailing list, but then I found track of
this issue there, as well as this conversation.

AFAICS this issue is still present with 2.17.11.
I do not find the original report on the issue tracker, and I suppose
no fix has been pushed, since figures are not centered on note column.

Could someone confirm this situation?
My guess is that bass figures should indeed be centered on the note
heads (note column), so default behaviour should be changed accordingly.
But only the figures.  Accidentals, +, etc. should not be taken into
account in the "centering", contrary to Bertrand's first "workaround".
If someone possessing a reference book could confirm this, thanks.

Then addition of this on the tracker would be appreciated.
Thanks you.

Cheers,
Xavier
