the file i am using is of a 18 inch circle with 23 lines of code
when i load the file the 8 line is highlighted when i use the rewind
button and go to the top [start of code] file would run until it reach the eight
line and stop.
looking at the table display mode this show a straight line been drawn no part
of a circle.
I have tried a number of circles and they are all the same.
but never a problem with squares i made a file with 20 squares and that worked.
i made a file with a circle and a square together that dont work.
thanks paul

Try changing the IJ mode in general config.
