In all examples I saw, the only value ever assigned to Fingering.staff-padding is #'() to make fingering be placed inside the staff. What should I do to go back to placing fingering outside the staff? What was the previous value of Fingering.staff-padding?

The effects of an \override can be undone with a \revert.

In particular:
\override Fingering.staff-padding = #'()
can be "cancelled" with:
\revert Fingering.staff-padding


You could try a number instead of the empty list, i.e.:
\override Fingering.staff-padding = #0
which seems to be about right.
Or you could (of course) try a larger number if you want more padding.

If you look in the Documentation Internals 3.1.51 Fingering, it says that the default value for fingering staff padding is 0.5.

So:
\override Fingering.staff-padding = #0.5
is the way to manually reset this setting to its default value.


However applying \revert is obviously a simpler method than messing around with numbers.
