Yeah…I hear you there…
The most annoying thing that I have to gripe about is that Easel will generate rapids within a model that goes right over an already milled area that is already complete. This should never happen; no matter what, if a toolpath moves over an area which the tool is not going to be milling over again then the tool should, AT MINIMUM, be brought up to the milled area plus the safety height. Now, I know that Easel might not currently have the capability to determine where it has just cut, so in that case going to the regular safety height above the original stock height would be fine. Ending up with a 0.001" deep carve over a part where it was just smooth perturbs me greatly.
Easel used to not do that, but on one of the update a while back that optimized toolpaths it started happening.
Now, for the OP, what are you milling that you cannot use clamps?
