Different top layer patterns for different items on same build

I would like to specify different top layer patterns for different objects on the build plate, not different instances of a given object. It seems I can modify many of the parameters for a given object, including layer thickness, fill %, etc,. but not top (or bottom FTM) layer patterns, or at least I don't find it in the various item editing drop-down menus. Have I missed it? Possible? If not, it should be. Off to github?

I think you have missed it.  Top Infill pattern and bottom infill pattern are both available.  Click Add Settings>Infill.  The ones listed in the sections above Add Settings are the common basic ones(as decided by Prusa).  The Add Settings option gives many more.

I'll add to that, you need to be in expert mode to see those settings.

Yep, missed it

I'm ALWAYS in Expert Mode, although I won't claim to be an expert (yet)! Thought I had been through all of the drop-down options, but I either missed it or didn't go deep enough (it's buried pretty deep). Thanks for the guidance.
