reverse cut lathe wizard

Is there a lathe wizard for cutting the reverse direction? (Spindle to TailStock) The current wizard will not let you define a cut that way.

You could probably use G51Z-1 at the start of the code to reverse it then G50 to reset. I use that when I am using the front toolpost on my lathe to reverse the X axis as the rear turret is my default.
