## shortInstrumentName vertical spacing

 In string parts, I often use more than one stave where a section is divisi.  I write, for instance, \set Staff.shortInstrumentName = "2." when one player (or sub-section) is required, or \set Staff.shortInstrumentName = \markup \column { "3." "4." } if two players need to play this line.  The default settings are fine for this. But I have a stave now which applies to 3 players.  If I put \set Staff.shortInstrumentName = \markup \column { "2." "3." "4." } it takes up rather too much space vertically, so I want to move the numbers closer together.  But nothing I have tried so far makes the slightest difference.  My latest version is: \set Staff.shortInstrumentName =   \markup { \override #'(baseline-skip . 6)             \column { "2." "3." "4." } } I felt sure that this would work, but it doesn't.  ("6" is a value just for testing - obviously the value I want actually to use will be much smaller.) What am I doing wrong?
