BUG: "availible" (by DIV)
When opening a file, I got a message:
"An autosave file is availible for this project."

I know it's a very minor thing, but just to provide the feedback, that message has a misprint. It should be:
"An autosave file is available for this project."

"cicles" (by DIV)
"To create a tangent arc, [...] lines or cicles [...] join."
should be
"To create a tangent arc, [...] lines or circles [...] join."

"tangent arc" instruction (by DIV)
By the way, that wording was quite hard to understand. It seems the idea is to select a VERTEX, where two (non-construction) lines join.
Maybe there is no need to mention circles here?

Both of these are fixed in the code (by ruevs)
But there is no release with these fixes yet.

Cool (by DIV)
Thanks, ruevs.

Based on the recent post by Bart at;parent=2854&tt=1570901163 I found the new wording for the latter message, and indeed it's been amended in the latest code to:
"To create a tangent arc at a point,
select that point and then choose
Sketch -> Tangent Arc at Point."

I still think it might be clearer to say either "vertex" or "vertex point" instead of just "point".
At least in the current version, if I add a standalone point (no lines), there is no way that the tangent arc tool can be applied to it. By mentioning "vertex" I think it will be clearer to users that two lines need to join at the relevant point.
[Note: even a point on a _straight_ line or a _circle_ won't work, but these aren't classified as "vertices".]

"Corner (point)" (by DIV)
An alternative to "vertex" or "vertex point" would be "corner" or "corner point".
