parallel finishing "straight on" option not available for flat endmills

Took me some time to figure out why I´m missing the "straight on" option on the parallel toolpath I´m trying to get.
Turns out its (only?) available for ball and bull nose cutters.

Even if its a 3D toolpath I often find not-ball-cutters to be way more efficient (smaller cusps) 
My workaround was to make a fake cutter with ridiculously small corner radius. 

Still I wanteded to 1) mention it here for people running into the same issue 2) suggest to enable it for flat endmills too or at least add a hint in the help document (https://help.autodesk.com/view/fusion360/ENU/?guid=GUID147124AA-7BD5-472C-91A2-D580AECD489F

Thanks for raising this issue, I don't think I ever noticed that before. I'll get the Help document updated to reflect this.
