``` In 2.12,  the NoteNames output lays close beneath the lyric line.
In 2.13.54 the gap is quite large and the output collides with
markup above the next staff.  Is there a workaround?

```
```Try
\layout { \context {
\NoteNames
\override VerticalAxisGroup #'staff-affinity = #UP
}}

The initialization file (engraver-init.ly) actually says
% FIXME: not sure what the default should be here.
\override VerticalAxisGroup #'staff-affinity = #DOWN

```
So let's set the correct default now. Is there any reason to assume that note- names will most often be associated with the staff above or the staff below ?
```
```
If not, we can set staff-affinity to CENTER -- which doesn't really mean center but means get close to a staff on either side. I guess the programmer didn't
```think that 'staff-affinity = #PROMISCUOUS  was appropriate.
```
```
```
It definitely works best with staff-affinity UP, where the note names are below the stave. Presumably it would be best with DOWN where they're above. It also is improved with:
```
\paper {
}

```
IIRC, this is all to do with the system spacing not taking account of non-staff grobs? I do think this is likely to cause a number of problems in the future.
