Linear Scale indicator labels overlap with tick mark labels

I am using linear scales in perspective, and the indicator labels by default are positioned so they can overlap with the tick mark labels, so if my “High” indicator happens to be in the same location as a labeled tick mark it turns into a sloppy looking mash of letters. It’s not the biggest problem, but I would really like to be able to bump the label over 5 or 10 pixels. It doesn’t change with the width of the scale, I can’t find a property that will let me alter it, and the label seems to ignore leading spaces.

Is there some way to make this happen?
