Except that I do not understand it.
I do not understand why I should do
setShape: self localBounds;

and why I should do shapeDo: in the initialize

This is totally unclear to me. So this means that I cannot program 
anything I want
with it. Imagine I could not find anything simpler than a box with a 
circle drawn on it
and even with the solution I cannot understand it.

You see in Morphic this is simple: you have a drawOn: aCanvas method and 
you know how to draw: aCanvas
I do not get the interaction between the draw and the initialize.
This is totally unclear.

Now I tried and this code did not work in the build 26 so I tried with 
drawOnAthensCanvas: and it crashed.
So I stop.
No need to reply to this email and thread.
