Using both elision and hyphen in piano fingering

Is the following possible by means of the fingering popovers in Dorico?

I use elisions to show finger interchanges and hyphens to show the fingers that alternate in a trill. This makes it possible to show when the first or last notes of a trill are played by different fingers from those that play most of the alternations. Two or more finger numbers over a single note without an elision or hyphen shows that these fingers play the same key simultaneously.

You can’t do this at present, John, since the appearance of fingering substitutions is governed solely by an engraving option, which means it applies project-wide. But I have made a note of the need to allow this to be varied on a per-fingering basis (which we could achieve by way of a new property in the Properties panel) and we’ll try to implement this soon.

Thank you very much, Daniel. Ideally, one would be able to type a symbol in the popover to show a hyphen.
