Extremely slow advanced v carve

I am making some catch all trays for a friend, and she had a design that she wanted in it. I am pocketing down .5 inches and then running an advanced v carve tool path. My retract height is .02 inches. The v carve path retracts all the way out of the dish repeatedly taking way longer than it should. I there any way to write this file so that the bit will retract from the pocket top instead of the top of the workpiece? If not, is this something that Carbide Create would maybe push out in a later update?

Any one file can only have one Z Zero, and one retract height. You can save the VCarve off into a separate file, then use Z Zero as the bottom of the pocket to match ‘top-of-stock’ in that file.
