Glad you took my advice. *smile*

I have just taken a closer look at Note Pad. Indeed it tends to draw lines
that are 2 pixels wide, especially when drawling diagonals.

Peronsally, I stopped using Note Pad rather quickly after I had started
using it. It was over 3 years ago. I realised that I would not be able to
archive and search the data. I occasionally use Note Pad to sketch maps if
I go somewhere I don't know well.

I am guessing that the size of the application is much larger. It might be
slower than Note Pad too because of added complexities.
