Hmm, I think I'm not quite on top of this topic - what you use is the

Command: Short Measure
Allow too few notes/rests in this measure. LilyPond will engrave this
measure (in all staffs) with the short duration given by notes already
present when this command was issued.
Location: Object Menu ▶ Measures
Internal Name: ShortMeasure

Which tells the LilyPond typesetter that this is a short, not just the
Denemo Display.
