Hi Michael,

​​Thanks for the response! I tried to frame the original question as simply as possible, so I left some things out that have now become relevant. One of the reasons I was trying to use instrument names is that I actually want to use a more extensive version of the "clef" before the first system, and a simplified version for the rest of the systems.

I think, going by this description, that maybe an InstrumentName is actually the simplest solution.

In order to right-align the instrument names, try the attached diff (using git apply).

It's basically a matter of

- adding an \override InstrumentName.self-alignment-X = #RIGHT (for right-aligning the instrument name block as a whole),
- creating a variant of the (now renamed) \unit-height-column command for a \unit-height-right-column.

Also, I'm quite sure it's possible to accomodate for arbitrary staff space. By which method do you change those?
