Instrument labels (condensed staves) adjust padding?

I often find that the instrument labels on condensed staves are too far from the staff, and there are exceptional moments where to alleviate vertical spacing issues I’d like to sit the text almost right on top of, or immediately below, the staff.

However, the text’s padding erases the top/bottom line of the staff.
Is there an option somewhere to adjust how much padding there is beneath and above an instrument label?
(for example, the bass trombone label in the image below)

Engraving Options > Condensing > Player Labels : Erase background with padding

AHA! brilliant, thank-you.
I KNEW there had to be an option for this somewhere.
