Performance Technique with parentheses

Hello all, is there a way to add parentheses to performance techniques? There are times when you need to reiterate that an instrument still needs to maintain the current technique. Example would be if you have a solo and le altre where the solo is playing arco and everyone else is playing pizzicato. I feel like restating it without parenthesis can seem a bit much.

I just use text for that generally. there’s no real need for the performance technique (ie: the software information) to be restated. Simple text will do.

I’m not at my computer but this page in the User Manual might do the trick:

Just duplicate one and add the ()

Without parentheses, it would even be confusing (did we miss an arco in between?), and therefore, a bad idea.
