Default spiral ramp option

Is there supposed to be a option for spiral ramp under the ramp option for pocketing?

Only for profile, not for pockets.

If you'd like to pocket a circle with a spiral, I made this: http://forum.vectric.com/viewtopic.php?f=51&t=32546

DVE2000, I see you have to input the center-of-circle values for X and Y for your spiral gadget. Is there a way to apply the gadget to existing circles of different sizes and locations on drawings? I pocketed hundreds of holes this weekend with the standard offset pocket toolpath on VCP. Sure would be nice to select all the circles on your layout and have them generate a nice spiraling outwards pocket cut.

Hmmm. Right now you could selected multiple spirals with their containing circles to change spiral options. And they'd all be changed to the same size. I could fix that part relatively easily - just like I don't allow center x/y to be changed with multiple selections. But the gadget specifically looks for spirals and circles that it created. It may be possible to check for a general circle and convert. I can look into this when I get some time.
