if I'm not mistaken (and a very recent post in the German forum

As using italics for fingerings is a regular use case (e.g. to
differentiate between editor's and composer's fingerings) I would like
to see native support for italics in fingerings.

So there would have to be a) glyphs for italics numbers in Emmentaler
and b) a way to choose between upright and italics for fingerings.

The default mechanism uses the 'fetaText encoding to get the numbers. If

\override Fingering.font-encoding = 'latin1

you should then be able to change the font to any normal text font and turn
on Italics.

I gave it a try, and using

\version "2.19.54"
1-\tweak font-encoding #'latin1 \tweak font-name "Ubuntu" \tweak font-size 6 \tweak font-shape #'italic -3

I can get the correct font and font size, but not the correct font shape (nor series).

Don’t know why…

Best, Simon
