What happened to shapes?

What happened to the ability to set a shape for a non-container note (e.g. $Shape=“diamond”)? This seems to no longer work, or am I missing something?

Still works for me (v7.1.0). How are you trying to set the shape? As well as via key attributes or action code you can use the Appearance Inspector.

Works for me. ($Shape=“diamond”)

It’s probably more common to set shapes in the Appearance Inspector or to inherit them from a prototype. but this certainly works.

Remember that shape names (like most things in Tinderbox) are case-sensitive, and that we tend to use American, not British. spellings.
