Setting X-offset and Y-offset directly

Numerical values may be given to the X-offset and Y-offset properties of many objects. The following example shows three notes with the default fingering position and the positions with X-offset and Y-offset modified.

a'-3
a'
-\tweak X-offset 0
-\tweak Y-offset 0
-3
a'
-\tweak X-offset -1
-\tweak Y-offset 1
