Can we do this in Dorico?

I tried with the engraving tool and the notehead got in the wrong side of the stem.

To cross-staff to the staff below, select the note and use shortcut 'M'. To cross-staff to the staff above use shortcut 'N'.

To position the beam below the left-hand staff, select one of the notes on the lower staff, right-click and choose Stem Direction > Force Stems Down. That will put the entire beamed group below the left-hand staff.
