Cue notes individual prolongation

Usually I try to write cue notes until the very entrance of the target instrument. This requires sometimes to change the last note value of the source instrument into a smaller note value plus a tie. See screenshot. The eighth note with the tie is a half note in the source instrument. Can I write this somehow in Dorico?

What happens if you extend the cue past the player’s entry, to the next bar?

Dorico writes the original note length.

Sorry, I must have lost my brain while I was changing my silly profile picture.

I think the only way to do this would be to end the cue before the half note should be there, make the target entry a down-stem voice, and the tied crotchet an up-stem voice set to cue size.
