I've only tested the following in 2.11.  I hope it also
applies to 2.10.

You can either move the fingeringOrientations command
inside the << { } \\ { place-it-here notes } >> construct
so it is immediately before the notes in question, or set
it in the Staff context where it is with

 \set Staff.fingeringOrientations = #'(left)

Either will place the fingering to the left, outside the
arpeggio, but you may find they are too far to the left.
You can adjust the separation by modifying the Arpeggio
padding.  This value seems about right:

 \set Staff.fingeringOrientations = #'(left)
 \once \override Staff.Arpeggio #'padding = #-0.2

Subject: fingering orientation


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?
