Tempo text italics below staff

I all, I know this has been asked for before. Can we please have an option in engrave mode to flip tempo text below the staff, and in italics? I often see rallentando (rall…) and ritardando (rit…), accellerando (accell…), a tempo, etc below the staff, and in italics for these tempo changes.

Yes, in older (not so old…) piano and organ music it is quite common to have these between RH and LH. I’ve moved away from it and now place them above, but I can see the use of such an option. The current fix is to make a paragraph format and use that, but I don’t like it, as I’ve stated in other posts. There are benefits to using the default tempo markings that normal texts do not have.

Welcome to the forum, Michael. This is indeed on our backlog for future implementation, but I’m afraid I can’t say for sure when it will be done.
