Hookpad - how to enter IV chord with a V bass?

I’m in the key of C. I want to enter an F/G, that is, an F chord with a G in the bass. I can’t figure out how to do this with Hookpad. Can someone help me?

The best you can do is to an F(add9) because you can’t do a “third” inversion with (add9).

Put a V chord then for the type, pick ‘11’

@Vaz123 is correct. In Hookpad V11 is voiced with no3no5 (omit the relative third and fifth of the chord). Thus V11V11no3no5 which contains scale degrees 5, 7, 2, 4, 6, 1. The 4, 6, 1 are the IV chord so it a IV with scale degree 5 added to the bass. See attached pic:

@chris by the way can you answer my questions (and others’ of course)
