from 6/8 to C (C in brackets)

Hi, how can I put a C in brackets, after a 6/8 time? Time is in C, then switch to 6/8 and back to C, marked in brackets.
Thank You.

I would have expected to be able to insert the courtesy symbols as text,
by selecting Staff CUE symbols as font and from its
character map  selecting symbols, which show as (B) in the editor.

Unhappily, this comes out  with the C much higher than the brackets in NWC 2.51a

In NWC2.75beta28 when using  Staff symbols as font, and  (D) in the editor, there is the same problem.

I think this is a BUG.

I have seen. And 'well, the symbol (C) is always higher and offset with respect to the brackets. For now work out with a normal alphabetical C.
Thanks anyway.

It is possible to put in two text objects: the "C" symbol, and a pair of brackets with the appropriate number of spaces between them. Each text object should have its alignment set to Center, and would be positioned vertically so that they align as desired.

Courtesy time sigs don't actually need to have parentheses around them. Just leave them off.
