Hi @kwebek69GNU5L you are right. That isnt supported atm with the new Geometry Selections we just shipped. Its a know limitation. We recently posted the below list with the shortcomings there is with Geometry Selections.

Are you serious?  Why in the world would you ship a version of the product with KNOWN PROBLEMS?

If I go into a file from the past that had a chamfer toolpath with extensions, will those extensions no longer be there?  That is a major problem.

The current workaround is to use 2D contour with extensions atm. We are fully aware that comes with complications.
Your old toolpath is still intact with extensions, until you regenerate the operation.
We are sorry for the disruption this causes.

Chamfer Extensions have been fixed in the update that went out last night, sorry for the inconvenience!

That is great news!  Any idea when we will regain the ability to choose "global" pass extensions that apply to every geometry selection within the toolpath?  It's extremely tedious to choose pass extensions for every single geo selection.  It has really slowed down our workflow here.

That is still TBD, sorry 😞

Thanks to the Autodesk Fusion team for promptly and correctly solving this problem! It would also be great to be able to simultaneously apply the same extension values to all contours, of which there are many. The process of specifying Start Extension - End Extension values for each path is monotonous and time-consuming. This feature would also be useful for the 2D Contour strategy.
