Select your tied notes and type 5 O 6 . (five O six period)

This shortens the notes so they are no longer tied, forces duration, and then changes them back to the right length.

Press o, 5, 6, . (dot)
[Edit] Mark beat me to it.

Depending on how frequently this occurs, scouring Notation Options > Note Grouping for alternative default settings, or specifying the note grouping as part of the time signature (e.g. [3+3+2]/8) could end up easier in the long-run than forcing the duration of every instance.
