Question: Is there a way to insert a matrix determinant (ie, just like inserting a matrix from the palette but with vertical bars instead of brackets)?

When taking notes I sometimes use the palette to insert a matrix into a worksheet. When I do this, the main aspect that is useful to me is being able to visualize matrix expressions as I would write them.

I would like to do the same but for determinants of matrices. Is there a way to get almost the same thing as with the matrix palette, but with vertical bars denoting a determinant rather than the brackets used for matrices?
