CUE files work in 18 for me as I always split my files into individual songs/chapters. Easier to create playlists and choose random tracks from my iPad app. 
I guess you do with your own tool, just spotted it. This is what I was looking for a long time! Will check it out later this week. When splitting, can I keep original audio codec? What about gapless play of splitted files? I would assume it will no more play gapless unless you convert to Flac?

Splitting MKV or MKA retains the existing codec(s). No remixing it copying what’s in the original file.

I haven’t used 18.3 yet to play hapless content but I’d expect a small pause.

There’s a tool in Music Media Helper split and convert an MKV’s audio to FLAC. You choose which audio stream to convert.

I’ve added a new tool to create a CUE from already split mka files that are already tagged (I use mp3tag). I haven’t posted that new version yet as it includes a new split mka to chapters/songs that’s not quite completed.

EDIT: I only use MKA for Atmos and DTS:X audio, everything else is converted to FLAC
