I think you’re talking about routing across the grain. If so, the biggest suggestion I can make is to alway use a backer board. Follow the board you’re routing tightly with another board. I usually use a scrap piece just in case. If you don’t, routing across the grain, when you get to the edge, it tears out easily. Sometimes so bad that it looks more like a blowout than a tearout.
I tried explaining that the best I can. If it doesn’t make sense, I hope someone better with words can exaplin it better than me.
