This behavior is not so much a bug, as a error due to improper usage for open-edge profiling.
True, selection of bottom edges for combined purposes of setting geometry and Final Depth is intuitive and logical. However, due to the current implementation of the open-edge feature, it requires top edges be selected and a Final Depth to be set manually. Perhaps rethinking the approach to profiling open-edges will yield a return to the ability to select bottom edges as a means to fewer user inputs and easier, simpler usage.

This requirement to select top edges is noted in the Usage section of the Profile wiki page and has been there since 15 September 2020 per wiki history.

@russ4262 then should we flip this ticket to a 'feature' instead of a bug and reword it a bit to reflect why?
