Summary0015706: Graphical artifact on polygon contour
DescriptionI noticed a graphical artifact in some polygons perimeter. By artifact, I mean that, even if the path is continuous, the graphical line is broken (non-continuous). The strange thing is that this artifact depends on the zoom level and is even present in the exported PDF.
Steps To ReproduceCreate a bezier curve, convert the curve into a polygon, convert the polygon into a text frame, increase the size of the contour line. Maybe the artifact occurs only when the contour is very close to the page border.
Additional InformationI have attached a minimal .sla file and the relative .pdf file where the issue appears.

Sometimes the strange rendering can be seen in the PDF file too. You can take a look at this forum discussion for further detail:,3322.0.html

This SLA file behaves wildly in scribus : the vertical lines at the right and at the left.
No crash but depending on zoom, visible line length changes + line get cut with moving chisel or rounded ends.
This is all the more visible since the lines have a 1cm width.
With 1mm width some strange phenomenon still happen but much less visible.
