## Re: fingering orientation

It looks as though the command to set fingeringOrientations was not affecting the lower voice when you created multiple voices using <<{ \\ }>>. If you put the \set fingeringOrientations command inside the {} of the voice that actually contains the fingerings, then you get the orientation you want. This, however, makes the spacing messy as there's a documented bug having to do with the spacing of fingerings to the left of arpeggios. Here's the working code (with the buggy spacing):
```
\version "2.11.62"
\include "deutsch.ly"

upperStaff = \relative c' {
\clef treble    \key as \minor  \time 2/4

\repeat volta 2 {
\set fingeringOrientations = #'(left)
<ces-4 es-3 ces'-1>4(\p^"Andante" <ces es ces'>) |

<<
{ b'\arpeggio( as) }
\\
{ \set fingeringOrientations = #'(left) <ces,-4 es-3>2\arpeggio
}
>> |
}
}

lowerStaff = \relative c {
\clef bass      \key as \minor  \time 2/4
as | as
}

\book {
\score {
\context PianoStaff <<
\set PianoStaff.connectArpeggios = ##t
\context Staff = upper \upperStaff
\context Staff = lower \lowerStaff
>>
\layout { }
}
}

Hope that helps,

Jon

```Hello,

```
I write a piece for harp. I need sometimes fingering information for the player. While sometimes fingering above the staff is ok, I need it at the left side under some circumstances. In the example I want to write the fingering number for the notes "ces" and "es" at the left side of the arpeggio, but I did not succeed.
```
How can I achieve this request?

Best regards,
Helge
