Tech/Engineering - Computers: Software / Excel
German term or phrase: Tiefgang
KONTEXT: ,,Wenn Sie die eingangs gestellten Fragen mit Ja beantwortet haben, dann sollten Sie die folgenden Seiten entweder zunächst nur überfliegen oder aber sich gleich eine gehörige Portion Zeit nehmen für einen intensiven, lernenden Einstieg in die umfangreich erweiterte Grafikabteilung des Programms. Dabei meint die Wortwahl ,,intensiv'' nicht einmal das, was wir gerne als ,,Tiefgang'' bezeichnen. Denn Sie erhalten hier lediglich einen differenzierten Überblick – sehr viel mehr nicht."
The text relates to a new revised version of the software. (The questions asked at the beginning relate to whether the reader likes drawing things in Excel and making them look better than they already look.) I don't really understand what the author's trying to say with "Tiefgang" here. Does he mean "in-depth" in terms of "intensive" (and the reference to learning?)?
