Hello

I agree there is a bug in drawing.
I don't know Perl, so I made change to q and qq function and I was told that there can be ( as well as { bracket. Is it true?

q(string)
q{string}

Yes now it works.
I already reported this problem in the past.
forum.pspad.com

While you don't know perl: after the q and the qq you can use any special character.
You can use (), {} [], but also / !
perldoc.perl.org

the stange thing was atht before with {} the whole line disappeared. Now it is ok, the line does not disappear even using () ;

Thank you
