Thank you for the correct word; so I finally know what to look for.
So far your suggestion works Thank you once more :+)).
I have still a small problem:
If I write f.e. c:7.5+ I now get "C7+", but that was not ment; this chord 
should be called "C7#5" as it was called before.
Is it also possible to get the augmented chord as a "single chord", so that 
the other one is not modified in layout.

Regards Jan Kohnert
