(a 2) on Following Pages When Condensing

I haven’t been able to find this in the forum yet, so forgive me if this has been addressed.

When condensing two parts, I appreciate that Dorico automatically indicates “a 2” etc. at the start of new pages to make it clear who is playing. I would really like a default way of changing these specific courtesy indications to be parenthesized.

That is a suggested approach in the Elaine Gould reference book. I’m happy to go through and use the “custom text” feature to solve this, but it seems like a common enough need that an extra option in the engraving options would be welcome by many.

If there is actually already a global way of making that change, I’d love to know it.

Many thanks as always for the fabulous software!
