## Re: marks, voltas, and key signatures

I'm new to this game so the following might not be optimal, but I solved

\once \override Score.RehearsalMark #'self-alignment-X = #-1 \mark
\markup \large \bold { Tempo 1 \super \right-align o }

'fraid I can't help with the voltas.  Your third problem (key
signatures) has been discussed at some length on the list within the
last couple of weeks.  Look for a thread with subject line
"Accidentals".
