8va underneath an upper stave 8va - Dorico refuses

Hello to you all and hope all is well :slight_smile: .

So - I am trying to split a melodic line between two hands ( piano) so I need the 8va on the upper and lower stave but for some reason Dorico will not allow the lower stave 8va.
Due to notation preferences I have used the M and not the Alt+M.
Must I split beaming for this to happen?
Thanks .

No, you just need to use the caret:

thanks very much for your help.
