Re: How to engrave a line?

I am seeing some strange behaviour here. Attached is my current file, some additional operations but it is the PathShape which looks strange.

Re: How to engrave a line?

Re: Using Dependancy Graph on AppImage

OK I have downloaded the latest AppImage and as you say it does allow me to specify the location for Graphviz and it does remember it, problem solved. I do use the PPA for the repro install, but that only get me v17 and from what I remember there were some very useful addition for Path in v18 which ...

Re: Report View does not display - Fixed

OK fixed it! In Edit > Preferences - General > Editor > Text it seems to default to the font at the top of the list, which in my case is 1CamBam_Stick_1 which is a font intended for engraving etc, not for general text use.
