A better solution is:
set the style of control i to "curve"
As Richard noted, there is a problem with horizontal or vertical
lines. There is no such problem with the "Freehand curve" style.
Another point. I noticed that if I gave a graphic a name, it was
ignored in the conversion to Illustrator. The fix I tried was to
change the line:
if the short name of control i contains "graphic"
If the name of control i contains "graphic"
In this way a graphic with a "short name" of
will have a "name" of
and so will be included in the conversion.
Also,. the is one polygon graphic with an extravagant fill. The fill
doesn't translate to Illustrator. I didn't really expect it to, but
is suppose to?
