Beaming in compound time

How can the default beaming in 12 / 16 be set as in the attached pdf file?
It does not appear possible to enter dotted quavers in the beaming section of the time signature properties.

It's perfectly possible. In Time signature properties, in section 1/8, click on the 4th eighth note/quaver, and in section 1/16, click on the 4th, 7th and 10th sixteenth notes/ semiquavers. You get - see image below.

Add this new Time signature to your palette, then to your score, and you'll automatically get the beaming you want, including dotted quavers.

OK - I understand this and have been doing this all along. But........
- How can you set up this beaming pattern in the Time Signature Properties so that it gets done automatically when dotted quavers are entered? I think compound time signatures need a more flexible approach in the time signature properties.
