I see an invert check box and it works for routing off solder mask material and exposing the copper. Takes a bit of effort to work out the best tool diameter / passes combination in the isolation milling but it makes a nice cleaned out soldermask. I will think about making an instruction video on my process.... :)

When to use sprint layout and you export your gerbert file there is a invert button
