Add "Points" and "Diameter Override" to Bore cycle?

this would be nice to have. I can select a point to drill, but then also need to model a surface cylinder to bore it out? How about we just add these two features to the Bore stategy, think akin to how Thread Mill works! 

I am currently roughing out the bulk of a pocket with a U drill, then REST adapting. It would be safer in this Ti to be able to bore cycle the little islands of material instead of the program thinking it's 100% gone and just speeding through it all.

You can use the bore milling cycle under the drill menu to mill bores with selected points

The toolpath fails to generate for me. Are you using a single sketch point? 

edit: you have to still select the drawn circle, not the center point.

Are you using "Selected Points"?

I was initially yes, but if I do Selected Diameters (and select the sketched circle) it will work! Funny how the toolpath is still a plunge, but simulates the actual helix in. 

Can these overrides/features be added to the Bore cycle? In my mind it should be as simple as a copy paste 😉 

My guess is that the software is simply creating a canned cycle in the background and uses the center point as initial coords.
