note grouping in 7/4

I can’t figure out how to group these notes as I want:

first measure is what it supposed to sound like = 1 1/8 note and one long note

but I hate the double dotted half note and would really rather have it written like the second measure (with respective ties)

1/8 1/8-dotted 1/2-dotted 1/2

Using Shift-M, input [1+3+3]/4.

Great! Thanks.
