Hi Werner,

You can tweak the 'extra-spacing-width property like so:

  \version "2.11.53"

  #(ly:set-option 'point-and-click #f)

    tagline = ##f

  \relative c'' {
    d4 r d8[ d d d] |
    d4 r d r |
    d4 r d8[ d d d] |
    d4 r d r |
    d4 r d8[ d d d] |
    d4 r d r |
    d4 r d8[ d d d] |
    d4 r d r |
    d4 r d8[ d d d] |
    \override NoteHead #'extra-spacing-width = #'(0 . 3)
    des2. |
    \revert NoteHead #'extra-spacing-width
    r2 d4 r |

  \paper {
    paper-height = 5.0\cm
    ragged-right = ##f
    indent = 0.0\cm

There is an example in LM 4.4.3 using DynamicText, and the property
description is in LM 4.5.1.
