In my world they're often called "Tram Tracks"
That would be the usual spacing techniques.
I usually place them as right justified, best fit, NO preserve width. Then put a spacer or 2 to the right of them to move them away from the object to their right. HOWEVER, if you want to move it close to the preceding note then place a single spacer to their left, and then add spacers to their right to move them to the leftwards to where you want them.
- You can position vertically by selecting the anchor and <Shift+Ctrl+Up/Down Arrow>
- You can justify (select the anchor) and press <Alt+Enter>. In the properties dialogue select the "Placement" tab and change "Justification" and "Alignment/Placement" to suit.
- You can add spacer objects <Insert> to move things around.
Experiment. Spacers are wonderful positioning gadgets
