Changing z during job

Say I’ve started my job and find that it’s skimming just above the surface of the wood. Is it possible to lower the z value by increments during the job until I hear it engage with the surface and then stop and return to the start of the job with the new z value?

I mean without hitting the cancel job button and having to home axis all over again.

In this instance, I’m surfacing the board so can’t do a corner probe but if this happens despite probing the corner?

As Peter said above, the Red Arrow on this step here allows you to do that: WorkBee Control Overview

Step 5 of this guide allows for altering Z height if you are using Workbee Control. Not sure if you can do it during a run though, as not at my CNC.
