Swing feel tempo marking

Does Dorico already have a way to insert a swing feel tempo marking (eight-notes played with triplet feel as in jazz/blues)? I already have the piece set to swing feel playback, but I would like to add the correct notation too.

By the way, the swing feel tag is sometimes on top of notes that then are difficult to get at with the mouse as the tag gets inadvertently selected. Am I doing something wrong?

If you install Metrico, a free font created by our fellow Dorician Florian Kretlow, you perfectly can insert those markings as system text.

Thanks @MarcLarcher. Will try that.
