Re: Development version shape library

Yes Les, of course, not a problem. I'll just keep trying to add a few as there are different ways to input the same shape (eg, Triangle, could be an equilateral with just a height and width {which is what shape I'd done), but it could be a right angle with just a height and width.... or it could be ...
