Thanks. Done :-)

I've seen an email on the list from Mats. Unfortunately, I can't get his
solution to work :-( Code follows ...

%\override Score.VoltaBracket #'minimum-space = #1

\score {

\override VoltaBracket #'minimum-space = #1

The first (commented out) version blows up with "unexpected override".
The second fails with "ignored - score already contains music". I've
tried swapping "override" for "set", and that doesn't seem to work,
either :-( failing with "expecting =" *on* the equals sign! (iirc)

The other thing is, I want to set it globally, so I would rather set it
OUTSIDE the "\score{}" scope, otherwise I have to keep on setting
everywhere rather than just doing it once.

Found, thanks. In other words, if I read the thread correctly, it can't
be done :-(
