With so little time I'd forget going to any of the islands - you'll lose a lot of time doing that. Definitely spend a day in Zagreb. It's quite unlike the rest of the country - it's a classic Central European capital city - a mini Vienna or Budapest. Stop in Plitvice Lakes - get an early start on the day you leave Zagreb, spend a few hours (allow 4-5 hours) in the park, then continue on to Zadar. Zadar gets less attention that Split but the peninsular old town is lovely. Then head south, to Dubrovnik. If you had more time (and if the road bridge is open by then - it's due for completion by end of July 2021) I'd say drive down the Peljesac peninsula. It has some great beaches and more of an island vibe than other parts of the mainland (plus it has the best wines in the country). However you'll need the rest of your remaining days for Dubrovnik itself.
Hope that helps.
