Break a dotted rest

I’m probably missing something simple here. I’m in 5/4 and the first three beats in a bar are rests. Dorico insists on making this a dotted half rest. I would like it to be a half rest and a quarter rest. This is just for this one bar, it is not a consistent pattern in my 5/4 section. Please advise.

Select the rest and type O (which turns on Force Duration) and then 7 (which forces a half note duration).

One could also disallow dotted rests, but that would likely disallow dotted notes as well.

Works perfectly. Thanks, @pianoleo
