Perimeter boss ramp to full depth, contour part, lead in .010, do finish pass?

This is a very typical operation for a router on sheet goods. I want to ramp to depth, cut around part with a .010 allowance, then lead in without retracting, and do the finish pass contour. Every time I try to do contour operations that are dead simple in HSMWorks I stumble and fall flat on my face. 

 

Ramping to depth and doing a part contour is easy. All I want to do is make it lead in and do the finish pass and it won't.

 

Please help me before I throw up my hands for the 5th time with CAMWorks/Solidworks CAM and retreat back to HSMWorks. I WANT feature-aware machining.
