Sometimes, quite often really, \translate will not raise text, only move it left or right, but increasing padding will work.


I never considered using a Rehearsal Mark for text. I see now that it would work, but I want the end of the word 'Fine' to line up with the bar, so a little shifting would still be necessary, although maybe right or left alignment would work better using Rehearsal Mark.

Exactly what feature is it you want to illustrate? the padding or the
\translate markup command or?

By the way, why not use the \mark command to attach the Fine to the

c4 c8. c16 c4 \breathe
\once \override Score.RehearsalMark
#'break-visibility = #begin-of-line-invisible
\mark "Fine" \bar "||"

I think an example should be added to the documentation using TextScript under 5.7.5 Text scripts or 7.4 Text markup or 7.2.1 Common tweaks like this:

c4 c8. c16 c4^\markup { \translate #(cons 1.75 0) "Fine" } \breathe
\bar "||"


Or maybe demonstrating how to use script-priority might be more interesting in the Common tweak section although it is not a common tweak I suppose.
