Prevent Chord Diagrams from modifying note spacing?

It's very useful in general that when I add a chord diagram or name above my stave the element pushes subsequent notes away so the chord is only over the specific note. Then if one wants a new chord over the next note one can. However it's more typical for the Chord to only change every bar or two and it looks untidy to have this first note in a bar stretched out. It messes with the instict of how long the note is.

I've been trying to find a way to unlink the Chord notations from the tab beneath, to let them just 'flow' over the tab, or to manually reduce the space it adds but cannot find it. The best I've been able to do is to reposition the chord as far left as it will allow before it bleeds over to the previous bar. For a short chord name this almost eliminates the extra space but for longer ones it doesn't help much.

Does anyone know if that's possible?
