Feature Request - IM 3.1.0.1545 - z-hop while traveling

Feature Request:
Title: "z-hop while traveling" or "avoid printed parts while traveling" feature.
Description: To be used independantly or in conjunction with "retract at layer change" an option to z-hop while traveling with possible options of "All the Time" or "only on outer sufaces (top and bottom layers).
Version: 3.1.0.1545
Operation System: win10
Reason: As examples... items like emblems, key chains, etc.. that have flat top/bottom surfaces that are the primary cosmetic surfaces can be ruined by travel marks as the head moves across the printed surface. Developing an option to either "avoid outer surfaces" or z-hop when travelling would greatly reduce the need for post processing, clean-up or potentially trashing a print. Even though this feature would likely increase print time, the offset is more successful prints with lets post-processing time.

Thanks for the consideration.
