## Re: Positionig text markup

```I always use the padding property, example:
\property Voice.TextScript \override #'padding = #3

The problem with 'raise' in text markup is that it only
raises the text object relative to some other text object
in the same text markup. I'm not sure why it works to add
a columns declaration.
