Cross staff cross voice slurs

Hi, Thank you for being such a helpful forum. My engraving of a piano score continues:
The published score looks like this

I have used voices to input treble clef (right hand) and bass cliff (left hand) notes viz

The way I have been able to recreate the published slur is to (for instance) slur from A to Bb in RH and then adjust the slur in engrave mode viz:

Is there a better way?

thanks

I applied the slur from the initial eighth note in the bass clef to the final eighth of the measure using mouse-click to CMD/CTRL + mouse-click on the first and last notes I wanted under the slur. Even though I adjusted the slur later (in the second measure of the illustration) I feel safer that were I to respace the measure, the slur would be more likely to stick to the first and last note automatically, even I needed to readjust the curve.

Thank you for the help / advice!

Greatly appreciated.

I didn’t realise I had.
Thanks for the heads-up
