Contains rows that list the coordinates of the vertices for the lines and arcs that make up the shape.
The geometry of a shape can be expressed in multiple Geometry sections. Multiple paths can be useful when multiple paths have different properties (e.g. image clipping paths).
The Geometry section contains the following row types. For details, see the row topics.
Row 
Description 

Move to a coordinate. 

Draw a line to a coordinate. 

Draw a circular arc to a coordinate.

Start a spline. 

Draw a spline segment to a knot coordinate. 

Draw an infinite line from one coordinate to another. 

Draw an ellipse from a center coordinate and a major/minor axis. 

Draw a cubic Bezier curve relative to the width and height of the shape. 

Draw an elliptical arc to a coordinate relative to the height and width of the shape. 

Draw a line to a coordinate relative the height and width of a shape. 

Move to a coordinate relative to the width and height of the shape. 

Draws a quadratic Bezier curve relative to the width and height of the shape.
