Efficient beam grouping for non-standard meters

How do I instruct Dorico to produce

With open meter or 11/4 I get longer groups that can be split, but it is tedious.
I’m used to Amadeus where I would just say “ba4” and be done with it. Is there some similar trick to it in Dorico?
11/4 does not have a half-bar and

does not give the expected(?) result.

[1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1]/4 works, but it seems a bit ‘over-worked’ to have to do it like this.

I think at the moment specifying the grouping in the time signature is the best way to go. An option to group notes/beams every crotchet/quarter note in open or otherwise large meters has been requested before, I believe.

Thanks. Perhaps a more “general” approach (with a specific sign post for beaming) would be better, to handle all possible group patterns?
