I am starting to look at Path and have no background in CNC or CAM, so by all means take my suggestion with a grain of salt.
For a beginner there are many aspects of Path which are hard to grasp, and one thing I find confusing are Heights and Depths, and I think confusion could be reduced by changing the term "Finish Depth".
It is not a depth like Start Depth or Final Depth, but is a Depth of Cut, or alternatively a Step Down.
My suggestion is to call it either "Finishing Depth of Cut" (which it is), or to tie it in with the Terms "Step Down" and "Final Depth" and call it "Final Step Down".
This is my suggestion based on the image in the wiki.
The note at the bottom isn't really needed.
I realise that this means not only changes to coding but also existing documentation, but as Path is in its early stages of development and particularly documentation, if changes are to be made to make Path easier for beginners, the sooner the changes are made, the better.
Unfortunately I cannot help with these changes, but I am attempting to write a tutorial on Path for beginners like myself. I need to learn Path so I can complete the FreeCAD beginners tutorial I am working on.
