ProNC Turning Scan Type = Ramp Retract in WF5

I'm a new user to ProNC, and was wondering if anyone can tell me if there is a bug with Scan Type Ramp retract.

The help section says the "STEP_DEPTH distance in two passes. The first pass is angular, that is, the depth of cut gradually varies from RAMP_STEP_DEPTH at one end to zero at the other end. RAMP_STEP_DEPTH must always be smaller than STEP_DEPTH. The second pass is horizontal. The tool retracts to its original position after each pass."

All I want to do is remove .100 in 2 passes as follows. 1st cut depth start .050 deep and ramp to 0. 2nd cut paralell to spindle centerline, so the cut will be 0 to .050 deep. (because the 1st cut cut an angle)
