Whenever I draw a path, and then I try to end the path with ctrl+left click, the path automatically converts to a polygon. Even stranger is that the polygon's geometry seems to be defined by lines perpendicular to the lines I've drawn.
In the most simple case, if I draw a horizontal line, when I ctrl+left click to end the path, the line is converted to a *vertical* rectangle. I attached a picture - the rightmost one was created by drawing a slightly longer horizontal line. So it appears as though the length of the line is related to the width, but not the height of the rectangle.
The other attachment is a complex random path that I drew. You can still see the original drawn path underneath the polygon when I hover over it with the mouse.
How do I get a simple linear path without it being converted to a polygon?

Andrew, you have set a default path width in the setup-dialog. So any new created path will get this width and if the edge length of the new path is short than this width the created path seems to be a polygon. Set the width back to *0* to get a line only:

That's the problem, thank you! No clue how it got set to 3...
