Masking a tie

Is there a better solution for this? I’m placing an “empty” text object behind the tie, but as you can see, it gets a bit fiddly as note spacing changes.

EDIT: I solved it, but I’ll leave it here in case it helps others. I just attached the text item to the actual rhythmic position I needed it, rather than at the downbeat. Duh.

Not sure why the signpost looks so funny, but it all works.

I think the conventional solution would be just to move the tie up, and move the left hand end right.

I can see that in this case, but sometimes there’s no way around it.
