Rest Notation In Cut-Time

So in cut-time, Dorico automatically gives me a dotted quarter rest whenever I want something on the and of two or four.

How do I break it up and make this a quarter rest and an eighth rest?

Assuming your notation options are set correctly to give you quarter rest + 8th rest in 4/4, go to Notation Options—Note Grouping—Time Signatures With Half-bars and check the option Use common time note grouping for cut common time signatures.
