Description Regina Henschel 2018-12-06 22:14:01 UTC
Created attachment 147337 [details]
Example with three quarter circles

The command X in the enhanced-path of a custom shape geometry toggles x- and y-direction, see table 10 in section 19.145draw:enhanced-path

PowerPoint and Karbon renders it this way, but LibreOffice uses always x-direction.
