Fermata then breath mark (comma)

The original manuscript has a fermata on beat 3, then a breath mark (comma):

But in Dorico, I add the fermata, then when I try and add the breath mark, the fermata disappears. It seems like Dorico allows only one but not the other. How can I make both appear?

(Note this is a large orchestral score, so the fermata is going to be across every instrument, while the breath mark is going to be across only the instruments which are playing something at that moment, which is several.)

(m201 - mentioning this for my own reference)

Use a very small grid and offset the fermata or breath mark one grid mark from the other.
