How beam across crotchet rest?

My guess this is by design, as the crotchet doesn't have a beam, the rest won't have either, so the rest's beaming property is just ignored, and probably rightfully so.
Workaround: make it 2 quaver rests.

Meanwhile, a workaround might be to add quaver rests, mark them invisible, then add the crochet from the symbols palette.
So this will now be possible in 3.6.2
