Good default entry for dynamic + hairpin + italic text?

See attachment. Anybody know a simple way to enter all three of these (mf, crescendo, and espress.) and have it positioned in a reasonable way, without needing to go into engrave mode? Thanks.

In the Dynamics popover, enter “mf <” then add “espress.” as a hairpin prefix. The prefix by default will be below the hairpin right at the start. I find this is often better than being immediately after the dynamic but before the hairpin. All done in write mode. You can adjust the prefix more in Engrave mode if it doesn’t quite suit your fancy.

Example from a current project:

Oh my goodness thank you!!! Huge help.
