Allow non-breaking spaces in Figured Bass input
There are times when Figured Bass needs to be input where no note or rest exists. In this case hidden notes can be input but that is a real bother and should not be necessary. A much better solution is to use a non-breaking space to separate figures. The figure remains attached to one note but more figures can follow it separated by non-breaking spaces. It sort of works now, but only for some cases and with slightly incorrect display:
- the figure has to be on one line
- the figure can't contain any alterations like a plus or slash
- after entry the font appears at the wrong size (slightly larger than normal), and the position is slightly off
My suggestion is to allow figures to include non-breaking spaces for all cases and to display the results correctly.
