More trouble with joining paths #191

Have a collection of paths that I am trying to join into one closed path, which I want to fill, assign some transparency too, etc etc... [one may dream...] Worked in a simpler example, but for this collection I seem to be unable to join them, even in pairs. Get the dreaded "Unable to join paths to a single curve" [I believe "into a single curve would have been more correct, but... :-) ]

Help! :-) The attached is a stripped-down version, hopefully only with the curves I am interested in. 7.2.7 on MacOS 10.11.6.

In your Ipe's Lua directory there is a file editpath.lua. It contains this line:

local join_threshold = 1e-9

Apparently this is too much to ask for in many situations. I will make it a preference, but for the moment you can join your paths by changing it to 1e-6.

Preference prefs.join_threshold added in 7.2.8. The default value is now 1e-6.
