Wow, so elaborate, Pilou, that's impressive!
I will also have to finish the manual. There are still a few things missing.

Most excellent structure already! :ob

Ah damned there were some little traps like these crazzy apparenty empty 4 Menu's Bars ! :o

So i believe i have successed to emulate that :roll:
Rustic but efficient! :beer: I will put some colors when all thesite will be finished c:!
(only one tab File for the moment...that slow down my progression! (File, Edit, Settings, Tab) :mrgreen:

Ps You have a little bug on your page when you click on the image of the File / Export PNG !!! That Grey/freeze the screen! :shock:
Mine open the image on all its splendor! :hihi:

PS Big question : what are the nature of your curves ? Bezier Nurbs, Vectorial, Poly ?...

I return to my Sysiph's work! :lol:

Uh, strange... gotta check that bug! Haven't noticed.

We have Cubic Bezier and my own invention "Tailor Beziers", which really are two Quadratic Beziers, giving you a handle in the center for very easy curve definition. It's brilliant for clothing pattern design! 8-)

I don't see a "bug" with Export PNG, though?! Do you mean in the "Menu" section of the manual? Seems to open up fine here. :shrug:

About curves inside the prog itself it's "Nurbs" like ? (And not like Blender who is "Polylines" (not vectorial) ?

About the bug tested with Chrome here the video: you see that is an alert and closing the alert that becomes "grey" !!!
I must click on top page for retake the hand!

Oh, when you click ON the image itself?! Yeah, that's strange, too... wonder why, because it's just an image. I'll have a look! :ob

All the vector object inside White Rabbit CAD are SVG paths, really. So it's whatever that would be, depending on the implementation of SVG. I assume it does create line clusters for Beziers and Arcs, but I can't be 100% sure. Not our concern, luckily, because it's just the display engine. You will not see any polygonal edges, though! :) ...most importantly, it's super crisp and smooth on the print out, too! :hyper:

So SVG is Vectorial ? ;)

I reread a little part of the French text with a good writer! :)

Hehehe, yeah, imagine what the V might be fore inside SVG?! :lol: :shrug:
Thing is, while I literally prefer to do my entire low-level drawing myself, it's kind of relaxing to rely on a bit of API stuff. Now on the web I actually really enjoy it, too. Anyway... the most golden of all rules: Whatever works! :ob

Well, the book looks very architectural right off the bet, hehe... anything interesting to learn from it?
