I have edited the Path deburr but have to correct the page name it is now called:
Parth Debur
should be:
Path Deburr
Edit I can just make a new page... :D
So here it is: https://wiki.freecadweb.org/Path_Deburr
Please delete this one and update first post!

Thank you!
Deleted 'Parth Deburr' although, a wiki admin could of easily renamed the page. But no matter ;)

I made some tweaks on the page. you can compare the wiki history to see what I did.

Feedback:
  • Please explain what 'deburring' means in the Description section Path_Deburr#Description
  • A little more elaborate step by step Path_Deburr#Usage instructions (you can use other wiki pages as a guide)
  • Add a Limitations section to help users understand where this function is currently limited
  • If possible add a Scripting section to illustrate how to use Path Deburr functionality within a script.

in the on-going 0.20, I don't find the tool under:
Path → Engraving options → Deburr

but
Path → Deburr

is it a mistake or is it something planned to be done?

If one looks at the Path icons the Deburr is under Engraving options.

If one looks in the main Path menu the Deburr is not under Engraving.

Perhaps inconsistent, but there are probably lots of similar differences between icons and the main drop-down menus.

Thanks for all the feedback it's my first ever wiki-page, so lots to learn!
But I don't mind to write down the stuff that I should write down anyway.

If we get more people too use the software, we hopefully get more people funding the great devs that are working on it.

Yeah, I was using the icons. We should probably fix this, so it is the same in both places.

If the only problem is the wiki then I would advise caution.

More icons could be added, or the drop-down menu could have more sub-elements, but what is actually broken as it stands now? As I said, there are quite a few places in various WBs where similar situations exist.

my remark was related to the wiki page. On the top right side of the page, we put the path to launch the tool.
