In certain musical (mostly, German and Scandinavian, I believe) traditions a whole note with ONE vertical line on each side of the note is used to indicate a very long note of INDEFINITE duration.

This note should not be confused with the double whole note (breve, with eight beats) which has TWO vertical lines on each side of the note, (as found in The Sibelius layout on the second keypad ("More Notes" - F9) puts the breve on the "8" key).

Is there any way in Sibelius 2023.3 to find and write this note of indefinite duration?

Thanks to anyone who could help me.
