Open Graph support

Open Graph allows your published website or web document to provide a preview in any social network or app that can show it, whenever it is referenced. For example if you paste into a Social Media app, the app will almost immediately show the graphic below, which is published as part of the website.

The Utilities > Web Properties dialog has a new Open Graph tab. Click on the Help button within the program for more information

Shape editing improvements

When the end point of an open bezier curve is selected in the Shape Editor tool the infobar now shows the angle of the tangent and allows the user to edit it numerically. This helps when aligning the curve with other rotated objects in a drawing
