"Play Time" wiggly line problem

I’m rescoring some old arrangements from one of the respected local S.F. jazz musicians. I can’t figure out how to use the squiggly line thing he uses to instruct the drummer to just play time for a specified number of bars (see pdf). I’ve tried numerous options using the Bar Repeat section function, but that wouldn’t let me create a region without having something before it. I thought about just having a 8 and 16 bar “rest” and typing text above it to “play time” but in Engrave Mode when I try to move the text slightly to the right - to help with the general layout spacing - the text disappears. Humph! Anybody have any ideas?
