Phonology Assistant Searching with Diacritics

In Phonology Assistant if you want to search for something (tone, nasalization, etc.) with diacritics you need to use an AND expression like [[V][◌̤]]/_ However, when you choose the diacritic from under Pattern & Pattern Building in the Other tab it inserts the diacritic, but there’s no placeholder. Nor can I see a way to choose a placeholder. Students had to copy and paste from the help files or insert it using the IPA keyboard. Is there some way to make that more user friendly within PA?

Thank you!
