Chord symbol for "play octaves"? (See example image)

I’m making a lead sheet. I was wondering if there is a way to make the same chord-symbol as shown in this image:

I guess I could write “omit3omit5” to state that the those notes are not played here, but I kind of like how it was done in the example image .

Note: I don’t need the chord diagram… I usually don’t use those.


The closest Dorico equivalent would be “D bass” or “D only”; there’s an Engraving Option for choosing which of these two will be used but internally they’re the same thing.

Aha! Found it! Thanks. I guess that works =)

“N.C.” for “no chord” would be pretty common too.
