The oval (and Draw's circle command) is bugged, I think. Compare... view layout [box red effect [draw [pen blue fill-pen green circle 10x10 10]]] with... view layout [box red effect [draw [pen blue fill-pen blue circle 10x10 10]]] In the second example where draw's pen and fill-pen are the same colour you get just a blue box instead of a blue circle with no obvious edge colour. However, draw's circle is still usable if you're happy to give your circle an edge with a different colour, so it could be a substitute for your misbehaving oval. The docs for the draw dialect are available via the View Desktop in the Docs folder. See EasyDraw. -- Carl Read
