How to avoid gaps in 8th note lines when adding a chord symbol?

When I place a relatively long chord symbol (like Fmaj7/A) above a line of 8th notes (or 16th, etc), Notion automatically creates a gap between the note the chord was added to and the next note in line, exactly as long as the chord symbol is. This looks really awkward and makes the lines pretty hard to read. Is there a possibility to avoid this gap and just leave the notes the way they usually are?

As a workaround, you can use text boxes for your chord symbols and the notes will not be adjusted.  You can also click and drag text boxes into the desired position.
