Beam grouping

I didnt find it in the manual but…

in 4/4 I would like to have 3+3+2 8th groupings
is there some hack
I could only find this 3+3+2 8th groupings in 8/8

this to be entered in a shift+M formula


You can’t easily do this in 4/4 because it would require Dorico to understand [1.5+1.5+1]/4, which it does not at the moment. So you have to employ the old trick of using [3+3+2]/8 from the second bar onwards, hiding the time signature at the start of the second bar, and fixing the beaming manually in the first bar where the 4/4 time signature appears.
