Hi, playing around with Nodebox for a few days and i keep running into an error I can't understand: If I increase the number of items to be arranged in the outer circle in either the Metallica examples from the Tutorial or the Appmap example here from the Forum the connectors disappear. The words in the outer circle as well as the album titles are still there but the arcs are gone. What is it that I am missing here? Example is attached:

Thanks for your help

    Hello sebastian.

    I've gone through your example and noticed that the lookup node called pointsgroup (which is the second point for your quad curve) did not return anything.
    Problem is the key value for your zipmap. I've added a Integer node (0.0 becomes 0) to overcome the problem since there is no automatic conversion here.
    I did not change anything else. I also noticed that you are using a lookup node to lookup a header which is not included in the csv file. That is not possible..

    A zipmap with the new file is in attachment

    hope this helps.
