Problems in generating ramp processing toolpaths

I am trying to engrave text with a depth of 0.3mm using an end mill with a diameter of 0.1mm. The problem is that the end mill is too small to create a ramp when cutting the text. While the tracing function can cut along the centerline of the text, it does not have a ramping feature. On the other hand, the contouring feature has a ramping feature, but it does not have a toolpath that follows the centerline of the text, so I have to manually sketch the entire text by moving the toolpath by the diameter of the tool. Is it possible to update the program to address this issue?

Hmm. I'm not thinking of a possible solution that doesn't some level of sketches. Slot could work, if all contours were equally spaced apart (they're not). 2D Engrave would require a chamfer type tool, but that does support multiple stepdowns (not ramp though)..

In 2dContour, if you turn compensation off, it will go on centerline just like trace.
