a tempo + (q=q)

How do I go about having a (q=q) marking over a barline just before an a tempo? They seem to be mutually exclusive: I can enter either one but if I enter the q=q at the a tempo spot, or try to enter it in the popover with an a tempo, it removes the a tempo. I know I can enter both at slightly different rhythmical positions and then nudge them in Engrave Mode but there must be a better way I’m overlooking.

No, there’s not a better way at present. Metrico, or just different rhythmic positions.

Or put the A Tempo in with System Text.

That’s what I thought. Thanks to both of you!
