Aligning numbered lyrics with initial punctuation

• Feb 14, 2016 - 07:45

Lyric numbering appears to work as follows: When a lyric begins with a digit (assumed to be a verse number) then MuseScore aligns the first alphabetic character in each line.

But there is a small set of punctuation marks that can commonly begin a line of verse: double quote, single quote or apostrophe, and Spanish inverted question and exclamation marks. (Likely there are others I've forgotten.) The code that aligns numbered lyrics should accept and align these common punctuation marks as well as alphabetic characters.

In the attached score, measure 1 is the current behavior; measure 2 is roughly the desired alignment.
