Rendering of the "Nesting" connector
« on: February 24, 2021, 09:58:33 pm »
Could the rendering for this connector be revised by someone who has basic ideas of geometry? Even when it's perfectly vertical the horizontal line protrudes the circle to the right quite often (not always, but sparxian). Describing it's form when it's angular has quite a bit of Dali in it. I'd guess that not many use this connector, but every time I see it it hurts my eyes.

I'm afraid that is due to the implementation of the shapescript rendering.
As you might have noticed, shapescript rendering seems to use a chaotic element to make sure none is truly the same.
This is especially noticeable when dealing with curves. Circles are never really circular.

I'm not sure if Sparx has any control over this rendering engine. I suspect it's an external component they integrated into their code.

Hm. That's an internal connector and they have full control over the rendering. Or rather as obvious, they don't have.
