Note Grouping question: How to make two tied eights notes as one quarter?

image
Is there an option in Notation Options - Note Grouping, to make two tied eights notes as one quarter (in that particular case)?

Not in that specific case, no, because Dorico’s idea about this kind of short-long-long-long-short syncopated pattern requires that the “shorts” are notes, not rests.

Oh, now I see. It works with one rest, not with two.
Thanks for clarifying, dspreadbury!
