Not working arcTo method

Recommended Posts

OK, 

  1. The documentation for arcTo is completely wrong: the way this method works is actually the same as 2d canvas context arcTo as described here.
    The x1,y1 point is not the starting point of the arc, it is the second point of the first tangent. The first tangent is from x0,y0 to x1,y1 which, in your case is 100,100 to 100,100.
  2. Based on this, your example is not a feasible shape because your initial tangent is a zero length line.
  3. It's not clear what you are trying to draw.

Hey coolblue, would you mind putting in a PR to fix those docs? Thanks!

I believe this has not been fixed yet in the docs, in case anyone else stumbles over this.
