When working in cut common time signatures, which beam grouping options are applied?

I’m trying to get beam groups to only apply to quavers (8th notes) if the fill the half bar in cut common, but neither set of options under simple time or Quarter Note (crotchet) denominator time signatures appear to be being applied.

Is there a way to do this?

Beam group options are not available for cutc time signature (see numerous other threads on this topic).
The workaround is to create a hidden 4/4 in the 2nd bar and manually beam the 1st bar.


Thanks @Janus works fine in this instance and nothing to do in the first bar (everything in the first bar is a minim!)
